According to my tests, PIL works just fine with libjpeg verions 7 and
8 (there's been a bit of version inflation over there lately :-).

I guess you could get into trouble if you build with header files for
libjpeg 6 and then link the result against libjpeg 7/8, but I have no
idea if that's the case.
