I got the vxpocket and have been experimenting.  You (and others) are
right.  The issue isn't with the sample rate.  I was getting the same
errors with the vxpocket and jack as with UA-20.  

"The audio interface "hw:1" doesn't support any of the hardware sample
formats that JACK's alsa-driver can use."

The problem seems to be that when compiling jack the alsa-driver looks
to see if the system is big or little endian.  It selects the sample
formats based on that.  Problem is the powerbook is big endian and the
vxpocket uses little endian.
