Question Could not find jack/jack.h

What do I need to get to satisfy the following error?
It's not, as far as I know, an XMMS package.
I don't -think- it's ALSA, bu tI'm not 100% sure.
I could also be completely wrong about it all.
Google-fu has failed as well- the closest I get it alsa-lib-jack results. Which I can't find for FC3 anyhow.
I'm running FC3 on my laptop.

checking for XMMS - version >= 1.2.7... yes
checking for pthread_attr_init in -lpthread... yes
checking for constructor attribute... yes
checking jack/jack.h usability... no
checking jack/jack.h presence... no
checking for jack/jack.h... no
configure: error: Could not find jack/jack.h Install jack headers to build bio2jack

Check the following page about xmms-jack, and download/install as necessary:

I've never used it though.

XMMS-Jack is a plugin that allows you to send audio from XMMS through your Jack system, instead of the normal route (to your soundcard). It's a great plug-in, but if you aren't using Jack, you shouldn't need to worry about it.

Jack is a system that allows you to route audio. This makes it so you can basically have an entire studio inside your computer, with recorders, synthesizers, etc, and you get to determine the way that the audio is routed to each component, with no actual wires.

Whee. Thanks. I've got everythign installed and working, I think.
I've ran into one more problem, though.

Jackd, it mentions, is mostly a callback proggy.
Xmms-jack builds that into the output plugin for XMMS.
Jackd and xmms-jack are both installed...
... but XMMS won't see the libjack output plugin.

[root@12-217-181-176 jexer]# xmms
libjack.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

[root@12-217-181-176 Output]# dir -l
total 280
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 40592 Oct 13 2004 libALSA.so
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 15172 Oct 13 2004 libarts.a
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 14196 Oct 13 2004 libarts.so
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 14192 Oct 13 2004 libdisk_writer.so
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 22588 Oct 13 2004 libesdout.so
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 40014 Oct 13 17:31 libjackout.a
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 975 Oct 13 17:31 libjackout.la
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 43100 Oct 13 17:31 libjackout.so
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 44776 Oct 13 2004 libOSS.so
[root@12-217-181-176 Output]#

The permissions -seem- fine. At least comparing them to every other output plugin whihc XMMS DOES see.

Running xmms from root or user, whether from commandline or GUI, doesn't help. None of those combinations will let the lib-jack output plugin load.

... so, yeah. I'm not sure what's up -now-. More help or input, please? ^_^;
