  [ "as required"? ]

    Sebastian> does R not find this library? 

it would probably find the *library*, but above it tells you
that it looks for the header (*.h) files, not the library.

Typically the header files are only in the "jpeglib-dev" (or
"..-devel") package where I assume that you've installed a SuSE
package called "jpeglib".

(maybe it really only wanted the *library*, not the headers,
 or you have installed the headers there ...)
