FWIW, the last libjpeg update was no peach for me either, but for all the
pains I still think the ports system is superior to other OS's sw
management.   Sometimes the debian respository is a large WTF, and that's
the good one.  Also I posted a script a few days ago that will create a
backup of all currently installed packages.  Useful in a situation like
yours so you could revert to known good set of pkg's until you have time to
deal with the full upgrade.
