to see what PIL core build a certain Python interpreter is using, do:
>>> import Image
make sure that Python interpreter you're running Zope with picks up the
same core file (usually something/something/_imaging.so).

and look for functions named xyz_decoder (e.g. jpeg_decoder, gif_decoder).
alternatively, just try to save an image as JPEG, and see what happens:
>>> Image.new("L", (100, 100)).save("test.jpg")

you need the header files, the build libraries, and the runtime
libraries. if PIL's selftest says that JPEG support is working, you
clearly have them all; all you need to do is to make sure that the
Python interpreter you want to use PIL from is finding the right
version of the _imaging.so file.
hope this helps!
