Jack support on OSX snapshots

I'm using (and enjoying) LS on my linux station, and sometimes I use it also on a macbook for music production and experiments. Usually I use LS on linux and record it via netjack on osx, but sometimes I need a standalone solution on OSX. I found that the snapshots on the website don't support jack audio driver, and I don't understand why. I also tried to build it by myself, but I'm not good with Xcode and after several hours of tests I gave up. Unfortunally, even if the jack build on the website works, it is really outdated and doesn't support SF2 nor SFZ engines, which is a shame, since I have most of my sample libraries in SFZ format.
Is there a particular reason for not building with jack support? If not, can I ask to add it? Even a separate build could be fine, I think...

After some months I decided to try again, fortunally I found some help on #linuxsampler channel on freenode.
I put away Xcode and used directly the command line, and I was able to build and install liblscp and libgig without big problems, as soon as I will resolve this problem I'll post a small howto to help people who want to build linuxsampler on their own.
Now it's the turn of linuxsampler, which gives me some LD problems.
I added JACK_CFLAGS="-DHAVE_JACK_MIDI_GET_EVENT_COUNT" at the configure level to get the compilation process going on, but it stops almost at the end of it, giving this output:
On #linuxsampler they told me that maybe I'm missing the ldflags ("-framework Coreaudio" and so on) in the makefile for liblinuxsampler. I'm not an expert, so I really don't know how to fix this issue. I've already written to the linuxsampler-devel mailing list and to the osx port developer, but maybe there is someone here that can help also. FYI I'm using revision 2356 at this point.
Does anyone have an idea about this?
