AFAIUI, we want *everything* _compiled_ against the headers of
libjackd1.  The resulting binaries are then supposed to work at runtime
against both implementations. In fact, we install jackd2 by default.

ocaml-bjack Depends on libjack-jackd2-0 | libjack-0.116, i.e., it should
be installable with both jackd1 and jackd2, with a preference of
jackd2. This is intended.

If this is the symptom you try to fix, please elaborate on this
failure. I suspect the problem to be in your cowbuilder setup.

Please make it follow whatever is in the shlibs file of
libjack-jackd2-0, which contains libjack-jackd2-0 | libjack-0.116.
However, I don't really see the point in this dependency.

No, we really want to use the headers from the jackd1 implementation to
be used by default. This change would break that.
