JPEG support doesn't actually mean anything.

None of the Makefiles use the JPEG variables (JPEGLIB, JPEGLIBPATH and

The configure script uses the variables when testing for the TIFF
library, but that only matters if the TIFF library was built with JPEG
support but it requires specific switches to locate the JPEG library
(e.g. if the TIFF library is a static library).

If using --with-tiff and --without-jpeg works, either your TIFF
library doesn't have JPEG support, or it can find the JPEG library
without any assistance. Either way, adding --with-jpeg won't make any
