Hooray! :-)

Since "ldd fluidsynth" displays a dependency on libpthread this issue
seems to be inherited from upstream. Is this a problem that can be fixed
by editing the autotools files? Josh, perhaps you know how to fix that?

Ok, noticed. But can't you just install libjack0.100.0-dev then? It is
present in sid.

Given the boring copyright work I had to do for fluidsynth, I'm not
interested at the moment. After all, fluidsynth 1.0.9 is not even
uploaded to unstable yet. :( If you or anyone else want to help out, you
can do so by verifying that there are no copyright violations in
fluidsynth, in particular, checking

1) that the alsa driver has not borrowed any code from Ardour (which is
currently released under GPL).

2) that the code borrowed from the music-dsp code archive (or list) was
used with permission.
