When compiling from source, any software that requires an external
library (libjpeg in this case) needs both the actual library to
be installed, which I believe it is already based on your other
messages, and the related development files, typically header
files in /usr/include/ and perhaps an archive (.a) library
rather than the more common shared library (.so).

The other possibility is that the version of libjpeg you have does
not include the function jpeg_set_defaults, such as if you have a
major version mismatch. The INSTALL or Requirements files might
specify if a specific version is needed.

Hope that helps.
