From the linvst online documentation:
"Remove -DVESTIGE from the makefiles to use the VST2 SDK (by default the VST2 SDK is not required). If using the VST2 SDK then the plugininterfaces folder contained within the VST2_SDK folder, needs to be placed in the LinVst files folder. https://www.steinberg.net/en/company/developers.html"
It's saying that is not required but then immediately mentions using it. I've chosen the latter, a sentence away. Maybe ubuntuuser can tell what is the difference in building it with or without the SDK. As far as I'm concerned if it's not needed then the description stops at the first sentence.
I don't know either. What I do know is that the VST2.4 SDK is not available anymore. The site that everybody refers to for siad SDK, i.e. Steinbergs website, only has the SDK for VST3, which is quite different from 2.4. But, like you said, Ubuntuuser (who is the dev of LinVST?) can provide us w/ the definitive answer. For example: I tried to compile Abique from source. That one has sort of the same procedure for building from source as LinVST, be it that Abique cannot be built without a VST SDK. However, Abique won't compile w/ the VST3 SDK. To me it seemed logical to assume LinVST cannot use the VST3 SDK either since the readme mentions VST2.4.
