but jackd 0.99.0 can be configure to start automatically.
man jackd (Version 0.99.0) says:

JACK is evolving a mechanism for automatically starting the server when
needed.  Any client started without a running JACK server will attempt
to  start  one itself using the command line found in the first line of
$HOME/.jackdrc if it exists, or /etc/jackdrc if it does not. If  nei-
ther  file  exists,  a built-in default command will be used, including
the -T flag, which causes the server to shut down when all clients have
As  a  transition, this only happens when $JACK_START_SERVER is
defined in the environment of the calling process.  In  the  future
this  will become normal behavior.  In either case, defining
$JACK_NO_START_SERVER disables this feature."
