   if (picExifInfo) jpeg_write_marker(&cinfo, JPEG_APP1, (byte *)picExifInfo,
And so I have here and there some small patches.

Pkgsrc is not perfect. There is always a package or two that does not build. If the problem is in the actual code, I can keep /usr/pkgsrc/ untouched and put my patch into LOCALPATCHES.
