[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: jpeg-6b-12, libjpeg62-6b-12; NEW: libjpeg-devel-6b-12

The jpeg package contains the Independent JPEG Group's libjpeg library
and various utility programs for manipulating jpeg files and images.
This is a routine update

libjpeg-devel-6b-12 (* new package)


* Now using autotooled version of jpeg-6b from sourceforge

* Still using lossless compression patch from ImageMagick:

* Replaced Mandrake jpeg RPM version of the 'lossless crop' patch 
  with versions of all current Debian patches, including:
  + an updated version of the lossless crop patch
    +  This patch was taken by Debian directly from  I had to modify it slightly
       so that it would apply cleanly given the lossless *compression*
       patch described above.  The lossless crop patch is in fairly
       widespread use (Red Hat, Mandriva, Debian, etc) and is
       *distinct* from the 'lossless compression' patch, which has 
       been a part of the cygwin jpeg packages for ages. 
  + man page updates for jpegtran reflecting the lossless crop options
  + c++ guards (cygwin jpeg-6b-11 already had this patch in
    a different form)
  + locale fixes for rdjpegcom.exe (reading comments in jpeg files)
  + bugfix for byte order when reading 16bit samples from 
    ppm files (cjpeg.exe)
  + Two new programs (and man pages) for dealing with exif metadata:
    + jpegexiforient: reads and/or updates the EXIF orientation tag 
         if present.
    + exifautotran: using jpegtran and jpegexiforient, losslessly 
         rotates/tranposes EXIF images so that the orientation
         becomes 1.

* Split headers, import libraries, and static libraries into 
  a separate 'libjpeg-devel' package.  The main 'jpeg' package now
  contains only utility programs, their man pages, and other 

* Switch to cygport build framework (note: requires patched cygport
