Are you running sid? If so, wait a few days and the dependencies may be resolved.

#nano /etc/apt/sources.list and add the line:
deb sarge main
It installed libbio2jack0.

I encountered the same problem when I installed mplayer. As suggested by someone, I then installed libjack independently. What happen next was terrible. A lot of my kde files were deleted, including kdebase. But after install libjack, i was able to complete the installation of mplayer. I re-installed those kde files and everything was back to normal, with a working mplayer.
