[PD] Testing Pd builds with JACK

Hey all

While testing the different Pd builds with different JACK versions, I
wondered how JACK can be uninstalled cleanly. Both JACK versions I want
to try come as a pkg, which installs a bunch of files to different
places. From what I gather, there is no straight-forward way to remove
everything reliably installed from a pkg. So I ask here, if there is an
agreed-upon way to remove one version of JACK before the other one is
installed. I usually wiped all jack* binaries in /usr/local/bin and the
/usr/local/include/jack directory before re-installing JACK packages. I
remember that colleagues had mixed experiences regarding Pd seeing JACK
with the same build of Pd. I suspect this could be related to some
having had left-overs from previous JACK installations. 

For reproducible results I'd like to know how you went about this.
