As Steve commented the reason for the dependency is that alsa-lib
includes a jack plugin, so to build the whole package you need jack. And
obviously to build jack you need alsa-lib :-) The latest spec file (I
don't think I have released that one yet, this came up during my FC2
rebuild) has a conditional so you can rebuild alsa-lib without the jack
