I have been using the compat mode in LJT since Debian squeeze. As
part of upstream X2Go I build packages just like the one in Debian

or with dget [1].

This is a good start. However, the package should also build libjpeg-dev
or whatever is appropriate so that the transition can be completely
tested. It would also be good to have all of the packages which depend
on libjpeg-dev built with this transition package, and a select few
tested without being rebuilt.[1]

I have updated the packages to upstream version 1.3.0 [1]. I have also merged the latest commits from the packaging repos on git.debian.org into the X2Go Git repos where the packages are built from [2].

The -dev package you are interested in is libjpeg8-turbo-dev. It provides libjpeg-dev and diverts the .h, .a, and .so file(s) of libjpeg8-dev.

1: You're probably already doing this, but details on the packages which
are known to work, and any which have problems would be important to

Yes, my notebook has been running with libjpeg62-turbo under squeeze and for quite a while now with libjpeg8-turbo under wheezy. I have not noticed any problems (iceweasel, eog, inkscape, gimp, libreoffice, etc.).
