I have been using this version of Ardour for quite some time with no problems but now when I got to start it, either with a new file or opening one, the splash screen comes up with Starting Audio Engine and then it crashes a few seconds later. The only thing that I've done differently recently is check out the source code and install the libraries for building it. Would that cause this problem?

Hmm several things...

One that isn't 2.8.1... (Which is outdated now anyways and you should be using 2.8.2 on OS X to be honest)

Identifier: org.ardour.Ardour2
Version: 2.7.1/4296 (2.7.1/4296)

Two we need a debug stack trace. Mac OS X will do this automatically if you tell it to, but you have to both set up OS X to do it, and build Ardour with DEBUG=1. This report doesn't help us much.

Three Building Ardour is fairly difficult on OS X, and there are patches that must be applied at various stages. I am not sure if you did this or not, it is not a common thing for people to do.

Four, crash reports should really be filed in Mantis, not here. See the "Issue Tracker" link above. This will help us vastly as it will allow you to do things like attach the console log and stack trace(When you get one) as seperate files, and makes keeping track of that and any possible patches or other files much easier.
