It's not just you, apparently.  I still need to check this - will try
to do so today.

libjpeg62 should do the trick.  We probably ought to check for it at
the end of the installation process, since this issue comes up often.

I'm not sure about the source installer, but I'll try that too.  In
general however supporting the source install on random platforms is a
nightmare, which is why we try to get everyone to download the binary
if possible.
