Is he using Debian?  If he is try 'apt-get install python-imaging'
:-).  I don't know about the jpeg-6b package, but PIL is pre-packaged
for a number of linux distros.

| [root@host jpeg-6b]# ./configure

    ls -l ./configure

I bet it isn't executable :-).

    chmod ugo+x ./configure

will fix it.
