Hi all,

With the libjpeg-turbo-1.1 release, it now has libjpeg-8 compatibility 
and is a suitable replacement for our version of libjpeg.  For those 
that do not know about libjpeg-turbo, you can get more info at 
http://libjpeg-turbo.virtualgl.org/ .  Essentially it is a lot faster, 
and as a bonus from a distributions point of view its development is a 
lot more open.

So test the version out in [testing] and report any issues.  It should 
be a drop in replacement so hopefully nothing will become too broken!
