He is right to be cautious.  I have Solaris 2.9 on my UltraSPARC.
THERE IS NO /opt/pub/ DIRECTORY AT ALL.

I do, however, have
/usr/local/lib/libjpeg.a
/usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.0.100/loaders/libpixbufloader-jpeg.so
/usr/dt/lib/libjmjpeg.so
I think that /usr/local/lib/libjeg.a is the JPEG library.
However, jpeglib.h isn't the /usr/local.
/usr/sfw/include/jpeglib.h
is where the header went, and it goes with
usr/sfw/lib/libjpeg.la
/usr/sfw/lib/libjpeg.so
/usr/sfw/lib/libjpeg.so.62
/usr/sfw/lib/libjpeg.so.62.0.0

But that's Solaris 2.9.  What about Solaris 2.8 (SunOS 5.8)?
Well, there isn't any /opt/pub/ there either.
On my 2.8 machine, there are a couple of libjpeg* files floating
around, but they are part of Java.

Bottom line:  don't rely on finding a usable copy of the JPEG library
in Solaris at all, and don't rely on anyone else who _does_ have it
finding it where you find it.
