I would remove all instaces of jack from your path /usr/lib /usr/include 
  /usr/bin /usr/local/lib /usr/local/include /usr/local/bin

and then run make clean in the jack dir and start again from sh autogen.sh.

Only hten can you be absolutely sure that you have only one version of 
jack in your system.
