I have my own version of qtractor.SlackBuild (i had no time to submit).

If someone wants windows VST support (I tried some plugins and the support is buggy, maybe in the future the support wil be better) he must install dssi-vst* and again optional download the SDK (version 2.x) from Steinberg if you don't prefer the vestige header.

One more clarification. The tab for VST plugins in qtractor refers to native (linux) VST plugins (ex. discovery). For windows VST plugins you go to DSSI and through dssi-vst the windows vst's are shown and (hopefully) loaded.

I don't know if SBo staff like this procedure, for this reason I send my changes here. If you approve I will ping the maintainer.

... [after variables] ...
# check for vstsdk2.3 or vstsdk2.4 folder
VSTFOLDER=$(ls -d $CWD/vstsdk2.? | tail -1)
VSTVERSION=$(echo $VSTFOLDER | gawk -F'sdk' ' { print $2 } ')

# VST support from Steinberg or from vestige?
if [ ! "$VSTFOLDER" == "" ]; then
	echo "$VSTFOLDER support enabled"
	echo "VST support from vestige"

./configure \
   --prefix=/usr \
   --libdir=/usr/lib${LIBDIRSUFFIX} \
   --sysconfdir=/etc \
   --localstatedir=/var \
   --mandir=/usr/man \
   --docdir=/usr/doc/$PRGNAM-$VERSION $VSTFOLD \ # Variable for vst.

* I have submitted dssi-vst for approval.
