I think the approach of adding a 'depends' to jackd2 is the simplest.
Moving the shared library to the -dev packages doesn't work, because
/usr/bin/jackd2 and netserver.so link against it.

The downside of this patch is that every package that depends on
libjack-jackd2-dev now also pulls jackd2. This might be a bit overkill
(and potentially starts a daemon). To resolve this, I think we would
need to introduce a new package (which I'd rather avoid at this point).

Let me know what you think about this.
