[Image-SIG] libjpeg and friends: binary distribution for Windows?

For some reason the PIL Windows installation (both 1.1.4 and 1.1.5b1, 
installed from binaries for Python 2.3) appears to require the jpeglib 
and zlib libraries.

I see these listed as optional dependencies for PIL, and IIRC I have 
installed 1.1.4 from a binary installer in the past without these problems.

Can someone tell me either a) how to do without these libraries or b) 
where to get binary installers for them? When I install the GnuWin32 
versions I end up getting a program fault (cannot read memory at ...).

To ensure a hygienic environment I re-installed ActivePython 2.3 but 
this failed to resolve the issue.
