I'm assuming by apt-get'ing you are on debian.

Have you tried to install the jpeg development libraries.

apt-get install jpeg will just give you the binaries/libraries not the 
development includes, etc.

apt-get install libjpeg62-dev (it may be different depending on your 
version of debian, and wether your in unstable or stable).

 From what I've been seeing, It looks like you are trying to install a 
HP printer in cups under linux.

if you apt-get install hpijs you installed it. You don't need to compile 
it also.

All you need to do is within cups config, add your HP printer. Selecting 
the proper driver.
