Can't compile ardour on OS X. IT says it can't find Jack, even though it's 
installed in the PKG_CONFIG_PATH.


# ls /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/
jack.pc  sndfile.pc

# ./configure
checking for pkg-config... /sw/bin/pkg-config
checking for jack >= 0.66.0... Package jack was not found in the 
pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `jack.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'jack' found

configure: error: Library requirements (jack >= 0.66.0) not met; consider 
adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are 
in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.
configure: error: /bin/sh './configure' failed for gtk_ardour


What gives? Is there a way around this?
