It could be something obvious and something you have done, but it's
1. Do you have the path to fink binaries, such as djpeg,
in your shell PATH (e.g., /opt/local/bin for MacPorts)?
2. Did you set up the path to the libraries you linked with in the
environment variable DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH?
For example, DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/local/lib for MacPorts
3. Did you execute your app with this variable available.
$ env DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/local/lib your-app
Once you confirm what is missing you can write a Python wrapper
to call your app with the right environment.
