Yes, you're certainly right that jpeg-turbo will install
/usr/local/lib/libjpeg.so.8, mine disappeared and for some reason is not
replaced when jpeg-turbo is installed.
I searched throughout my system for libjpeg and found a libjpeg.so.11,
and trusting to the gods of backwards compatibility, I copied that and
renamed it to libjpeg.so.8 and so far (sic) it seems to work.
Unfortunately, as I doubt very much that I will find the true
explanation and thus solution to my problem, as long as things seem to
work I will let it go at that, hoping that the problem will fix itself
some day when I upgrade FreeBSD or ports or something...
Thanks for your help
