the big blurb at the top of that page that says "This applies to PIL 
1.1.4 and earlier." and goes on to explain what do for 1.1.5, perhaps ?

(do you have the jpeg library on your machine, btw?  you need both the 
library and the developer files; installing the "jpeg-devel" package is 
usually the easiest way to fix this.  with this in place, the setup 
script should take care of the rest, all my itself.)

(you could also look for python-imaging in your favourite redhat 
repository.  )
