Please, everyone who is trying to compile ardour for OSX... it
has been done and it does work, but it needs the very latest JACK-OSX
that has yet to be released.  This version will be released hopefully
within the next few weeks, and at that time we will release a
binary package of ardour for OSX.

There is an already existing binary package that includes its
own version of jack, but because of various limitations we'd rather
folks just wait for the next one.
