cd jpeg-6b
./configure # if 64 bit uncomment => CFLAGS='-fPIC'
make install
ranlib libjpeg.a
cp libjpeg.a /usr/local/lib
cp *.h /usr/local/include


cd Imaging-1.1.6
mv setup.py setup.py.tmp
SED_CMD="s|JPEG_ROOT = None|JPEG_ROOT = libinclude(\"/usr/local/lib
\")|; s|ZLIB_ROOT = None|ZLIB_ROOT = libinclude(\"/usr/local/lib\")|;"
cat setup.py.tmp | sed -e "$SED_CMD" > setup.py
$PYTHON_COMMAND setup.py build_ext -i
$PYTHON_COMMAND selftest.py
$PYTHON_COMMAND setup.py install

Is what I have in my build notes.
