I built audacity from the source code. I think you'll find it finds the
libraries better when you build it from source. And if it can't find
them and they are not vital then it reconfigures itself to cope with it.
i think audacity is a great editor. The developers are really friendly
as well. (and they want/ need user feedback). I really like Snd as well,
but its more difficult to learn.
