That was unexpected, thanks a lot!

I have a mac-mini M1 with me, I can test later to see how your version 
btw, is it possible to build it without xcode?

One thing worth noting is that on mac arm64 systems, if you start a 
process from within a x64 application, the child process will be x64 too.
So if using qjackctl, jackpilot or something else that is built only for 
intel, it will start the x64 rosetta2 emulated version of jackd.
