In the configure file I've got for jack 0.100, it uses pkg-config to
detect alsa settings. That will look for a file called alsa.pc
somewhere like /usr/lib/pkgconfig/alsa.pc

You may have it in /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig, in which case

   export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig

before running ./configure in the jack directory (or
do similarly for other locations)

If you don't have alsa.pc anywhere, it usually comes
with the alsa-lib package - I don't know much about
debian, I'm afraid.. :)

You can test that pkg-config is finding alsa.pc by
running something like

   pkg-config --libs alsa

If that works, jack's configure should find it, I think.
