I was thinking that you meant that renoise did not detect freebsd jack
at compile time (looking for .h files, libs, ...), but perhaps you mean
at run time?  I've never used renoise or jack.

I sometimes find ktrace/kdump useful when putting a program into a chroot
and it can't find something.

I think so but I've never tried it myself.  If it were me I'd work on the
freebsd version of jack, as linux and I don't get along.  Your mileage may vary.
