      Description

      A lot of Linux distributions prefer that programs use the system-installed version of libraries instead of bundling libraries. OpenJDK currently bundles a copy of libjpeg and uses that to build.

      It would be nice if the build system could be modified to allow building against the system installed copy of libjpeg as well as the bundled copy.
