yes of course.

i'd still like to understand the problem first though.

my setup is: macOS X Sierra (10.7) in a VM

if i install the dmg file from my CI-scripts (now that they use a 
non-broken Tcl/Tk) Pd opens up just fine.
going to the media menu, i see two options for the audio backend:
- standard (portaudio)
- jack

selecting "jack" i get an error on the Pd-console, saying:
 > Can't open Jack (it seems not to be installed)

this is expected, as i haven't installed jack.

i then download JACK-1.9.19 from https://jackaudio.org/downloads/, 
extract it, and run the jack2.pkg found withing.
this should install JACK.

i *restart* Pd and select "jack" again, and now i get an error
 > JACK: couldn't connect to server, is JACK running?

again, tihs is expected, as i haven't started JACK.

so i open up qJackCtl (also found in the download from jackaudio.org), 
and start the JACK server (i use the *dummy* audio backend, as the VM 
has no soundcard).

back in Pd, i again select "jack" as the backend, and - tada - no more 
warnings *and* Pd shows up in the qjackctl graph.

the binary i'm using is this one (Tcl/Tk is universal; but Pd itself is 
only amd64; this is built with JACK from homebrew):

william: could you tell me where our paths deviate?
