Looking at ldd output for Debian's ioquake3, it seems the part of SDL we link
to doesn't actually use libjpeg, so we can probably move to libjpeg8 ahead of
the rest of the distribution if necessary; and if one of our dependencies
starts using libjpeg6b for some reason, versioned symbols will hopefully save

(We *have* libjpeg8, it's just the transition to using it by default that got
reverted, as a result of the two-versions-in-one-process problem:
<http://lists.debian.org/debian-release/2010/02/msg00147.html>. We now have
versioned symbols in both 6b and 8 which should avoid those crashes.)
