[ardour-users] HELP!! just clueless building from source

alright all you build-from-source junkies...

The bug I'm seeing in 0.9beta19 seems to be related to binary distribution so I 
attempted to build it from source.  Problem is it won't build and neither will 
jack_fst or fst, they all think I don't have jack installed.

the configure script fails and tells me to add the path to "jack.pc" to my 
"$PKG_CONFIG" environment variable, which is null...

This is why I prefer rpms!!

so what can I do to get around this?  "jack.pc" file does not exist on my 
machine, but of course I have jack installed and it's working fine.  Do I need 
to hack the configure script, or ???

Can someone help me?  I'm really stuck.
