I'm glad that it works for you. However, the way you did it was a bit
strange and might cause you issues in the future.

I suggest you try removing all the copies you made of libjack. Then make
sure you have jackd, libjack and the development package for libjack
installed (it's probably called something like libjack-0.100.0-1.dev). Then
recompile ardour.

This is the "right way to do it" (tm) and it will save you from troubles
when you install a newer version of jackd from the Ubuntu repository.
