Where can I get libjpeg? - problem with mozjpeg

No, I'm afraid that graphics/libjpeg-turbo is the same as libjpeg-turbo 
and pkg upgrade jpeg-turbo had no effect. As expected pkg check -B tells 
me all the packages missing libjpeg.

I am a bit puzzled that pkg says all my packages are up to date, and yet 
they're missing libjpeg...? I naïvely thought that installing a package 
installs any dependencies?
