Just though I would chime in:

Native fluidsynth LADSPA does have its benefits. Having to specifically
enable it at build time is no problem, but please don't disregard it

Also, one usefull aspect of the LADSPA code is the audio groups code. It
would be nice to be able to route different instruments to different
audio output channels. This would allow you to, say, have output
channels 1&2 connected to an amp and 3&4 connect to effects and you
could have a piano instrument playing clean through 1&2 on midi channel
1 and a rhodes playing through effects on 3&4 on midi channel 2.

While I'm at it... This is probably completely outside the paridigm of
fluidsynth, so if you are offended by the suggestion please just
disregard... Really, the only thing that is keeping fluidsynth from
completely emulating subtractive synthesis is pwm. It would be usefull
to have a generator that could take an offset from the start of a sample
and set all output of that sample to 0 after that. Or something like
that. But, perhaps such a beast does not belong in the main fluidsynth
source. Perhaps a patch would be more appropriate.

Cool. From looking at the backtrace a quick fix would probably be to

Disabling LADSPA in libfluidsynth indeed did the trick for fluid~:
fluid~ is up and running again now. [...]

<fluidsynth debian package maintainer>
At the moment I build libfluidsynth packages with LADSPA enabled.
Do you think I should remove LADSPA support ?
</fluidsynth debian package maintainer>

I would not compile it in by default. It has been tested by too few
people. And personally, I prefers solutions such as Pd+fluid~ or
fluidsynth+jack+your-prefered-ladspa-host to add LADSPA effects to the
