Thanks a lot. I did not understand, but after looking at the distfile (the
configure file) I understood what to do. I added the option --disable-aseq
to the CONFIGURE_ARGS on the audio/jack-rack/Makefile

CONFIGURE_ARGS=    --disable-ladcca --disable-lash --disable-aseq

And it's now working very well.

One more question: is this a case for me to request the submit of this "new"
Makefile to the ports, since we use OSS, not ALSA? Or every user should take
a look to the configure args of the distfile and change it the way it needs?

Thanks, again.
