Compiling JPEG-libs UNIX
If you want to compile the JPEG-libs (I found them on [download], there's an easy way to do it:
 % tar xzf jpegsrc.v6b.tar.gz
% cd jpeg-6b
% ./configure
% make
% make test
% sudo make install

just type

fink install libjpeg

and you get the same thing.

But of course if you installed MacGimp you can't (shouldn't) use fink.
