It was autodetected / supported on configure.

Oh! The whole message was an eye opener.

Just realized that I have wine-1.4 without jack support but with wineasio. So, I suppose - some time ago - I installed wineasio to check if it's better than wine+jack. In the meantime wine+jack was dropped but wineasio worked without new configuration (in the 'old' times it was mandatory to configure wine via winecfg to use jack soundsystem).

Maybe the problems that I have with jack and wine are related to wineasio.

Hmm.. So, it seems I just need a 'plain' wine binary. Is there someplace with wine for slack-current, or you can provide me the binary?

Thank you and sorry for the misinformation.
