if you run "build_ext -i", the _imaging module is installed in the 
current directory.  if you run python in that directory, and "import 
_imaging" picks up a copy from /usr/local, something's not quite right 
with your Python path.

(there's no way you can get both "jpeg support ok" and "decoder jpeg not 
available" for the same build.)

I suggest moving the version under /usr/local off the Python path before 
rerunning the selftest.
