I had to do the following to build and install it in a way such that PIL would recognise 
it. But it does now, without changing anything in PIL's setup files.

$ cd jpeg-6b/
$ ln -s `which glibtool` libtool
$ ./configure --enable-shared --enable-static --host=powerpc
$ make
$ sudo make install

(note that I have a PPC mac so the host parameter may not be correct for your system)
