  I think .xsession-errors has some hints:

/opt/trinity/bin/artsd: symbol lookup error: /opt/trinity/lib/
undefined symbol: ao_new_port

  ao_new_port is something tdemultimedia looks for in xine during build and it
is not present on my system -- never has been. From the tdemultimedia logs:

tde-tdemultimedia-i686.log:648:checking for _x_ao_new_port in -lxine... no
tde-tdemultimedia-i686.log:649:checking for ao_new_port... no

tde-tdemultimedia-x86_64.log:647:checking for _x_ao_new_port in -lxine... no
tde-tdemultimedia-x86_64.log:648:checking for ao_new_port... no

  The only difference in the build this time regarding arts or tdemultimedia was
that I built arts with WITH_GCC_VISIBILITY=ON.

   cmake ${srcdir}/arts/ \

  I do NOT think this was a good idea. For some reason, I don't think the code
(or the cmake build) is fully checked/ready for enabling this explicitly in all
cases. I'll test without the option and report back.
