note that the setup file does in fact pass in /usr/local/include via the
compiler's -I option, so if the above fix made things work, your compiler
setup is pretty weird...

or maybe you have conflicting versions of libjpeg installed in different
locations?  (but I don't think there has ever been conflicting releases
of libjpeg, so that doesn't seem likely...)
