I can't tell if you are referring to only users here or if you are 
saying it is not easy for anyone including developers? Either way the 
situation could be improved for genuinely interested developers by 
providing the complete build instructions which are currently missing 
from the docs online and in the package.

On my F11 I have libsndfile-1.20 installed manually with

./configure --libdir=/usr/lib64; make; make install

I then compile PA with

./configure --libdir=/usr/lib64; make; make install

I would certainly appreciate someone providing explicit steps for 
building the 32 bit chroot on f11. It doesn't sound particularly hard 
but I haven't got round to figuring out the exact steps myself yet.

Everything else on F11 meets the dep requirements for building the source.
