Oh, one thing about this. You will be in much trouble if your system
contains two versions of jack.

When you install jack in your distro, it is usually installed under /usr
(the jackd binary will be in /usr/bin/jackd). The default installation
location for linux source projects is /usr/local. 

To make the subversion jack install under /usr do "./configure
--prefix=/usr" before you compile and install. 

If you've already installed jackd under /usr/local, you can remove it
via "make uninstall" (just do that before you change the install
