Unfortunately there is no fix for the moment with configuring both MrSID and
Kakadu at the same time other than obtaining a MrSID release from Lizrdtech
that does not contain Kakadu in its internal libraries.

To turn on MrSID SDK for both .sid and .jp2 files read this previous thread:

The only "solution" I am aware of is to drop the Kakadu out of the build,
and depend on the MrSID driver for JPEG2000 support.  However, I am not sure
if the GDAL MrSID code is really setup properly to handle JPEG2000.  In
fact, I haven't personally run into this yet since I don't normally build
with the MrSID SDK.
