I figure you have jack installed from source. If not, install the
jack-devel package if it exists on your distribution.

If you do have jack installed from source it probably lives in
/usr/local, so it also installed its pkgconfig file there. 

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig

put that in your .bashrc and you should be fine..
