Most probably some -dev files.  (Come on, distro folks, it's 2017; bandwidth 
and storage are way cheaper than they were, back when the decision was first 
made to separate out files only needed by developers into their own packages, 
and now it's causing more grief than it is saving.)

Probably just

# apt-get install libjack-dev libresample-dev

although it's possible that you might need some additional -dev packages.  But 
try the above first.
