Looks like the purpose of that code is to make the application singleton. There are lots of solutions for this task that do not require X11. Here is a very small library that qjackctl can probably use or embed: https://github.com/itay-grudev/SingleApplication.

As a quick and temporary fix, maybe that functionality can be disabled? It looks like --enable-xunique=no to configure may be sufficient.
