Comment(by thomasp@…):

 I see no problems based on the research I just did, the main problem was
 due to the .so version change (.62 -> .7) which broke a lot of packages
 looking for that library, they have since been rebuilding everything
 against the new libjpeg. The only reason you might need the old 6.2 is for
 binary packages that you can't compile from source. You can't use a
 symlink to fix it as the two versions are binary incompatible.
