The problem here is that the azalia driver does not support mmap()ing
of the buffer, which jack relies on for low-latency audio.  Well, at
least it MAY be the problem; it depends upon your jack configuration
and version.  I have a wip/jack-devel snapshot that you can try
building (let me know if you have any problems with it)--it's version
0.102.28 (the same version in FreeBSD ports).  Do note that jack is a
bad application to test audio with; I'd recommend trying something
which supports sun audio first, like the audio tools included with
NetBSD (I think mpg123 might support it also, but I forget).

I've been trying to find out why the driver doesn't support it, but no
one returns my emails. :(

Best of luck,
