We've already rejected this before. libjpeg hasn't had an official release in
nearly ten years so there aren't really any particularly compelling reasons to
go down this route. If there are bugfixes/improvements to the libjpeg code that
for whatever reason aren't present in ioq3 then feel free to submit patches.

  * Marginally smaller binary and codebase
  * Updates to libjpeg inherited automatically

  * Extra dependancy
  * Different code path needed for platforms that don't support dynamic linking
and/or libjpeg
  * Extra glue required to deal with the fact libjpeg differs from the static
jpeg code with q3
  * Bugs introduced by interfering with code that already "just works" on every
