I think that the jack dependency comes from one of the command line
utilities of libsndfile which are now separated into the
libsndfile-tools package.

Note that here "now" means F-13+. I didn't want to make the split on
F-12 and before as it might break potential direct dependencies on
these utilities. This will give packagers a full release cycle to find
regressions if there are any. Or am I too paranoid?
