Pd works fine with jack now after I installed the JackOSX package from
IOhannes' second link. The package apparently installs (along a lot of
other stuff) something called Jackmp.framework, which is what Pd is
looking for. Also, it installs a jackd binary to /usr/local/bin.
Interestingly, once the framework is installed, I can replace the jackd
binary by the one provided by homebrew or by a self-compiled one from
the jack2 [1] repository and Pd (and other software) seem still to work

Since it doesn't seem to be a technical necessity, I believe it would
be good if Pd would also connect to a jackd that comes without
Jackmp.framework, as Dan suggested.
