It looks like the jpeg-6b-steg is a modified embedded code copy of
libjpeg6b. outguess upstream really should send their patches in
jpeg-6b-steg.diff to libjpeg upstream and remove the copy. I expect
that outguess is probably vulnerable to the various libjpeg CVEs that
have been released over the years.

Looking at the unmodified source code, libjpeg upstream didn't release
their configure.ac file until libjpeg7:


So I think what needs to happen here is that outguess needs a proper
upstream project to exist and be active, remove the embedded code copy
and port the diff to a newer libjpeg and upstream that and then get
that uploaded to Debian.
