WSPR in a pulseaudio environment (Linux)

It is really a long and hard task to install WSPR and WSJT on a Linux system when .deb packages cannot be used and the source files must be used. I'm using a modern Fedora distribution with pulseaudio. fldigi is running well in this environment. But this is not the same with WSPR and WSJT. I had to look closer to see that the two programs are using portaudio. There is no "bridge" to pulseaudio. While looking on "Applications" on pulseaudio's "Sound preferences", I can see the alsa plug-in from python connecting to pulseaudio when starting WSJT. But when I'm starting WSPR, this does not appears.

Can you help me to understand that ?

Further, I would appreciate any tool helping me to appreciate the audio signal received by WSPR and WSJT.

The starting message is:

WSPR Version 3.00_r2332, by K1JT
Run date: Fri Mar 25 10:59:31 2011 UTC
Cannot connect to server socket err = No such file or directory
Cannot connect to server socket
jack server is not running or cannot be started

The last lines appear also when starting fldigi or WSJT.
