That I can help with. 

1) Get the Steinberg SDK - Version 2.3 - from the address in the
README for fst-1.6
2) Get the files AEffect.h  and aeffectx.h from it and place them in
fst-1.6/vst directory
3) CD to the vst directory and run ../fixheaders
4) Edit aeffectx.h, go to about line 921 and edit things to look like
this: (A little different than I'm actually running, but I think this
is actually better than what I did. I actually commented out the whole
function I think...)

struct VstFileType
        VstFileType (char* _name, char *_macType, char *_dosType, char
*_unixType = 0, char *_mimeType1 = 0, char *_mimeType2 = 0)
/*              if (_name)
                        strcpy (name, _name);
                if (_macType)
                        strcpy (macType, _macType);
                if (_dosType)
                        strcpy (dosType, _dosType);
                if (_unixType)
                        strcpy (unixType, _unixType);
                if (_mimeType1)
                        strcpy (mimeType1, _mimeType1);
                if (_mimeType2)
                        strcpy (mimeType2, _mimeType2);
        } */
        char name[128];
        char macType[8];
        char dosType[8];

5) CD back to the top directory, then 

./configure --prefix=/usr
make install (as root)
