I doubt this is a build issue as much as it is an installation issue;
if the setup file says that you have JPEG support, and you don't get
any linker errors, you shouldn't get any "decoder jpeg not available"
try running Python with the -v (or -vv) option, to see if it really
picks up the _imaging module you built.
$ python -vv -c "import _imaging"
