Given the ease-of-use as far as running chuck alongside other audio
software, ChucK's PulseAudio build (make linux-pulse) is the recommended
configuration for day-to-day use.

As far as Linux audio + Jack in general, Planet CCRMA is a layer over
Fedora/CentOS that mostly replicates the Linux environment used at Stanford
CCRMA (which is used for most of our audio heavy lifting, network
streaming, ambisonics, wavefield, etc.). I can't comment specifically on
using ChucK + Ardour in tandem but I would be surprised if it doesn't work
well enough. Moreover, Jack is the preferred audio engine for CCRMA's Linux
environment, so you shouldn't have to worry about that being a second class
citizen. More info:
