If you managed to build libfst to a working state (Wine 05052004 is a 
reliable version of wine although others have had some success with 
later builds) Use jack_fst. It's solid for the most part and usefull. 
You just need to make your connections individually in the Qjackconnect 
or Qjackctl patch panel.
