Yeh, I end up linking statically to get around these hassles.

Yeh, the configure and make really only seems to work (I assume) if
the jpeg and zlib libraries are in /usr/local or in the system path
somewhere, and therefore aren't reliant upon configure command-line
options. For example, my configure line of:
configure --with-jpeg=/opt/jpeg-6 --with-zlib=/opt/zlib-1.1.2
doesn't work. (Note that I'm on HPUX and the configure line is also
prefixed with CC="cc -Aa -D_HPUX_SOURCE" *blech*).
Anyway, I'm back to editing the Makefile by hand just like The Old
Does anyone know the appropriate configure magic to make this work?
