What is the upstream location of that software? Googling for json
implementations gives a lot of small libraries, it is not clear which
one is needed as the pulse dep.

I guess it could be the one at http://oss.metaparadigm.com/json-c/,
but that website is out of order for some time now. The .tar file is
only locatable through the packaging systems of various Linux

Needless to say, such an unclear status of a dependency is not really
helpfull in packaging PulseAudio.
