After looking a bit I found that there is actually a workaround for this: libjack-jackd2-dev provides libjack-dev, so if you do

sudo apt-get install libjack-jackd2-dev

you can then do

sudo apt-get build-dep fluidsynth

...without having it switching from jack2 to jack1.

Unfortunately the packaging system doesn't understand that it could install "libjack-jackd2-dev" to resolve the build dependency, so it has to be installed separately first.
