Final follow-up. I was able to compile Pillow ( PIL's fork: https://github.com/python-imaging/Pillow ) with these 
static libraries from ATrpms.net (libjpeg and libfreetype).

While I have my solution for now, I believe it is still important to find out why PyPy is not using dynamically 
linked libraries, whether this is a bug or a feature and how this could be changed/fixed.
