I was able to compile the latest jack (including removing the distro libs)
and a2jmidid from source ... the latter was my first introduction to meson
though I figured it out.

I was able execute this successfully: jack_connect
jack_midi_clock:mclk_out "a2j:rosegarden  (playback):  record in"
jack_transport does exactly what I want via the start / stop commands.
However it is an interactive shell program. I want to execute each
jack_transport command with a background process at a timed interval using
jltctrigger (also for Adrour and OSC), for discussion purposes identical to
execution in crontab. Does jack_transport have to be interactive? I have
done some "expect" language interactive shell programming but thought i'd
