I'm not sure that I understand this comment, although it sounds
quite interesting.  Are you saying that I should rebuild the
program without JACK?  Or that via a softsynth I can use the
program anyway, without running jackd?  

What, if anything,  would I be missing out on by running the program 
in this way?
