what is the usefulness of a test, that behaves differently with different jpeg libraries, but none of the test-outcomes is clearly wrong?
Provided nobody states, that this test has an added value, I propose removing it completely.
Playing with build options costs just too much time and there are other issues (see my other mails) that forces one to try different --with(out)- combinations. So removing this tests makes life simpler and causes no side effects.
