Audacity is not officially supported by the Raspberry Pi, though there have been a few reports of it working to some degree (no-one is claiming great performance ;))

I'd suggest breaking it down into smaller, simpler tasks. Try to get arecord to work first. When that is working, then move on to Audacity.
