In gentoo packages default to >=media-libs/libjpeg-turbo-1.2.0 but there 
is an option to use >=media-libs/jpeg-8d

media-libs/jpeg-9 is actually "masked", read it as not installable.
According to https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=452008
The future of jpeg-9 is uncertain in gentoo (#c3 2013-01-15 07:33:19)
