Exactly, there are no jpeg_* functions and is no jpeg module for php. Image 
functions are handled by gd and there's also a PECL extension to work with 
ImageMagick. Read more about PECL here: and all PECL 
ports for FreeBSD are named pecl-*. So:
make -C /usr/ports search name=pecl-*	|less
will give you an overview of the PECL ports.

Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
    and never get to the software part.
