I am running a turbogears webapp using Python 2.5 and I need to use PIL.
However I can't seem to figure out how to install it with JPEG support.
I downloaded the Imaging-1.6.6 tar file and extracted it then ran 
"python setup.py install"
and I get this output :

running install
running build
running build_py
running build_ext
version       1.1.6
platform      linux2 2.4.4 (#2, Apr  5 2007, 20:11:18)
              [GCC 4.1.2 20061115 (prerelease) (Debian 4.1.1-21)]
*** TKINTER support not available
*** JPEG support not available
--- ZLIB (PNG/ZIP) support ok
*** FREETYPE2 support not available
To add a missing option, make sure you have the required
library, and set the corresponding ROOT variable in the
setup.py script.

To check the build, run the selftest.py script.
running build_scripts
running install_lib
running install_scripts
changing mode of /usr/bin/pilfile.py to 755
changing mode of /usr/bin/pilfont.py to 775
changing mode of /usr/bin/pilconvert.py to 755
changing mode of /usr/bin/pilprint.py to 755
changing mode of /usr/bin/pildriver.py to 755
creating /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/PIL.pth

I tried changing the path in the setup.py file to "/usr/lib" but that
didn't change anything.
What am I doing wrong ?
Thank you for any help you can provide.
