[linux-audio-user] how to compile timidity

i am trying to remove from my system all the packages which are 
depending of the jackd debian package, for being able to run jackd from 
compiling timidity works, but timidity wonts not to start.
the distri version from timidity i used to start with "jacklaunch 
timidity -ig".
now, starting the self-made timidity with the same command gives:

nowhiskey at murija2:~$ jacklaunch timidity -ig
/usr/local/share/timidity/timidity.cfg: No such file or directory
timidity: Can't read any configuration file.
Please check /usr/local/share/timidity/timidity.cfg
nowhiskey at murija2:~$

in /usr/local/share there is no timidity on my system:

nowhiskey at murija2:/usr/share$ whereis timidity
timidity: /etc/timidity /usr/local/bin/timidity
nowhiskey at murija2:

though there are so many additional options for building timidity.
perhaps someone is able to give me an example how to configure timidity 
that it can be started with the command jacklaunch timidity -ig?

i tried already with this
./configure --enable-gtk --enable-xskin --enable-alsaseq
