This won't work until you replace this lines by something, which will
consider optional path of command from argv[0].
if (sscanf(argv[0], "alsaplayer-%s", &use_interface) == 1 ||
    sscanf(argv[0], "jackplayer-%s", &use_interface) == 1) {
	/* Determine interface from the command line */
	printf("Using interface %s\n", use_interface);
