this sounds like a bad idea to me for many reasons. to do this cleanly, you 
could compile your own deb package and replace the distro package. for debian, 
something along these lines should work:

 # make some dir to build in, e.g.
 mkdir -p $HOME/build/jackd2
 cd $HOME/build/jackd2

 # go to https://packages.debian.org/sid/jackd2 and download (right column):
 #   - jackd2_1.9.10+20150825git1ed50c92~dfsg.orig.tar.gz
 #   - jackd2_1.9.10+20150825git1ed50c92~dfsg-1.debian.tar.xz

 # unpack the downloaded files, first the actual sources:
 tar xzvf jackd2_1.9.10+20150825git1ed50c92~dfsg.orig.tar.gz
 # after that, extract the "debian" directory in the sources root directory
 cd jackd2_1.9.10
 tar xJvf ../jackd2_1.9.10+20150825git1ed50c92~dfsg-1.debian.tar.xz

 # install build dependencies:
 sudo apt-get build-dep jackd2

 # build the package -- this *might* fail if there are newer build
 # dependecies; if this is the case and the needed packages are not available
 # for your distro, then it might be better to try something else :-/
 dpkg-buildpackage -b

if everything works, you'll have some new *.dpk file(s) in the parent 
directory which you can install. if you want this really fancy, you could use 
reprepro to setup a local package repository and provide the built packages on 
all of your machines. reverting back to the distro packages ist rather easy.

on the other hand, if you run into errors, they are likely for a reason.
