libjack-0.80.0 is quite old, so I think also the sources you're
compiling are old.
Recent versions of ardour use >= libjack-0.100.0
Grab the last cvs sources of ardour from
or the last stable release (0.99.3) from

In dapper drake you have to install the jackd, libjack0.100.0-0 and
libjack0.100.0-0-dev and other deps (read http://ardour.org/building)
in order to compile ardour from sources.

Hope it help,
