It's not necessary, I simply noticed when rebuilding 0.8.D.2 that it was used
if present (dpkg-buildpackage and pbuilder produced packages with different
dependencies); since at the time I wasn't intending on requesting a freeze
exception, I added an explicit build-dependency. Mednafen has actually
supported jack since version 0.7.0!
Should I remove the dependency?
