These projects (ardour and jack) are tightly coupled and need to be kept in
sync. The most likely way of getting them to build is build them *both* from cvs.
I've created a new ebuild (attach later when i get home) that builds jack from
cvs. In order to integrate it into portage i need some advice on how fit it into
the existing structure (if at all). My first cut has been to create a new
sub-dir of media-sound, jack-cvs.
It's likely that something similar will have to be done with alsaplayer
(although an updated package has been released that works with the updated jack).

upstream. Now depends on libsamplerate and a newer version of ladspa-sdk.
Remember, re-emerge jack-cvs if you want to re-emerge ardour-cvs to catch the
latest cvs updates as development of both programs are closely linked.
