Possible patch

Description of problem:
On Fedora, Ardour doesn't see saved presets for LV2 plugins.

I reported this in the Ardour bug tracker and we determined that the problem is in the Fedora packaging of `lilv`.

Fedora passes --default-lv2-path=%{_libdir}/lv2

To fix the issue, we should use the upstream default which is: ~/.lv2:/usr/%{_libdir}/lv2:/usr/local/%{_libdir}/lv2

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Ardour, add an LV2 plugin
2. Save a preset for the plugin.

Actual results:
Preset saved to disk in ~/.lv2 but doesn't appear in the UI.

Expected results:
Preset will appear in the UI.
