@CraigPid: Thanks for the report.

It seems that the recent update to glibc 2.31 broke some of the internal plugins, e.g.:

lilv_lib_open(): error: Failed to open library /usr/lib/ardour5/LV2/a-comp.lv2/ (/usr/lib/ardour5/LV2/a-comp.lv2/ undefined symbol: __expf_finite)

Rebuilding against current glibc fixes this. I hope that I can properly build against system libs once ardour 6.0.0 is released, instead of using statically linked versions.
