So you put in /usr/local/bin/jackd  as the path for jack, I assume?

On  macbooks to use the onboard sound with JACK you need to make an
aggregate device.
Open the Applications->Utilities->Audio MIDI Setup , go to the Audio
menu and pick Open Aggregate Device Editor, then + a new one, and
check the boxes for your inputs and outputs.   Then in qjackctl's
setup cilck the > button next to devices and pick that new aggregate
device (similar deal in jackpilot if you want to try that).
