The problem is related to the configure script of the new Jack. Dave has
a Duron processor which probably does not implement the full pentiumII
instruction set (Emiliano: which processor are you running?). The new
Jack configure script is apparently ignoring the CFLAGS build
environment variable and optimizing for a processor higher than i386...
I'll see what's the best workaround and will release a newer version
