yes, that's an endemic problem with all bibisect repos, except the very
latest from Bjoern, they're all missing --without-system-jpeg and thus
require that particular on the system.  i've worked around
that by just building it from source and LD_PRELOADing it.

on a related note, why are we bundling IJG libjpeg-8 [1] ... even
libjpeg-9 on master with LO, instead of libjpeg-turbo [2] like most
linux distros do nowadays?  apparently the prevailing opinion is that
libjpeg > 6 just adds questionable new features that, when used, cause
interop problems with older software that supports only the ISO
standard, i.e., what's implemented in libjpeg-6, whereas libjpeg-turbo
is standard JPEG and is quite optimized on x86 CPUs.

this seems to be a good summary of the situation:
