But this has been discussed earlier in this thread, you need nedko's a2jmidi to
bridge ALSA MIDI ports to JACK MIDI, or use a more recent JACK svn checkout and 
run jackd with -X seq.

Recent versions of qjackctl have it this way, the old MIDI tab has been renamed 
to ALSA, and a new MIDI tab is there to show JACK MIDI ports.
