This is on fc3, right?
No particular reason except for lack of time. fc4 has 0.38.x which is
also old (but is what we are currently using). Most probably I'll try to
migrate to 0.39 soon (after the quarter is over here at CCRMA). I did
start to migrate fc3 to 0.38 at some point but was never able to finish
the rebuild.

If you install from source (specially Jack) make sure that you use
--prefix=/usr in the configure step, otherwise you will have two sets of
libraries and binaries, one in /usr and a newer one in /usr/local. That
will eventually cause problems with applications finding the wrong one
and failing to launch. 

You can always see where the original packages were installed by using
"rpm -q -l", for example, "rpm -q -l pd" will show you where I installed
pd and which files were installed.
