I believe you want "pkg install graphics/jpeg-turbo". Do not put the "-2"
onto it. If you already have a version of jpeg-turbo installed, "pkg
upgrade jpeg-turbo". I am baffled as to why mozturbo wants to delete 207
ports, but deleting a port that you want to replace is done with the -f
switch. It's best to make sure all libraries are available with "pkg check
-B" and "pkg check -d" to confirm that all required libraries and
dependencies are present.
