-jack on Ubuntu doesn t come with MIDI support
-to get MIDI support you need to compile from source, i did it before on
another machine and it worked
-now i got a new laptop and when i try to compile it i get this:

io at lifebook:~/Desktop/jack-rack-1.4.6$ ./configure
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out
checking whether the C compiler works... yes
checking whether we are cross compiling... no
checking for suffix of executables...
checking for suffix of object files... o
checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... yes
checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
checking for gcc option to accept ANSI C... none needed
checking for style of include used by make... GNU

checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes
checking for JACK... configure: error: you need jack >= 0.50.0  see

-how is it possible that it asks for jack >= 0.50.0 when the latest stable
release is 1.4.6 ?
