it seems ecasound couldn't load the JACK plugin for some reason (missing
symbols, incorrect plugin path, etc). In configure, only presence of
<jack/jack.h> is checked. This is unfortunately not a 100% guarantee that
the plugin will work (as the plugins are loaded at runtime and problems
such as missing symbols are only catched at that point).

But, but, ecasound should spew out some errors when you run it with '-ddd'
(the log is quite long, so you could email it to me privately and I'll
take a look).
