If you want it to link with the static library:

Edit the Makefile in that directory and add "-mimpure-text" to LDFLAGS.

For such a utilitarian library like libjpeg, I would rebuild jpeg-6b
with ./configure --enable-shared --disable-static

Otherwise you're not reaping the benefits of sharing the same address space
of shared libraries.

I would first build libjpeg (and png) as shared libraries with the same prefix, and then make sure LD_LIBRARY_PATH includes the $PREFIX/lib directory.  The error may be because most people have a shared libjpeg and linking in a static one doesn't get much testing.
