Hmm, yeah we have them installed all over the place, seems to be a bit of a 
mess. I have libjpeg installed in $KDEDIR. I hacked the configure script to 
force it to look in the correct directory (for some reason the $includedir 
variable wasn't being set correctly). So now configure actually finds the 
headers. We'll see how it goes, thanks for the help.
