Hi,

I recently built koffice 1.5.0. I noticed a few things regarding krita:

- it requires littleCMS, libjpeg and libexif. It won't build without
  those. ("Won't build" means that configure excludes krita from the
  build process. The actual build will complete without error but krita
  is not built).
- when checking for libjpeg, it looks for libjpeg6b. The library (as
  installed by BLFS) doesn't have the 6b at the end:

$ l /usr/lib/libjpeg*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 162K Nov 18 20:47 /usr/lib/libjpeg.a
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  469 Nov 18 20:47 /usr/lib/libjpeg.la*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root   17 Nov 18 20:47 /usr/lib/libjpeg.so -> libjpeg.so.62.0.0*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root   17 Nov 18 20:47 /usr/lib/libjpeg.so.62 -> libjpeg.so.62.0.0*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 138K Nov 18 20:47 /usr/lib/libjpeg.so.62.0.0*

I worked around this by creating a symlink but that's hacky.

I hope this is useful to the koffice page maintainer.
