with retexturing on, the code in files.c should load pak1x.pak files 
(I'm pretty sure I added that...)

the jpeg loading code is in gl_image for both (I'm pretty sure, I'll 
check tonight to make certain)
so you'll only see a difference in glx or sdlgl modes.

I didn't do a side-by-side comparison, but I thought I saw a 
difference...  (of course I could have been misleading myself.... ;-P)

I'll check again tonight when I get back to my linux box.
