I have no idea where did u found that libjpeg.so.11, but running

grep -R libjpeg.so.11 /usr/ports

give no output, so no package is providing it.

You could try doing : 

pkg check -sa

to find any missing files.
If that wont do much, Id check pkg config files for any modifications
and do reinstall of all packages with: pkg upgrade -af,
and than see if it help.
