jpeg-turbo 6.2 and ppc G3


any of you still running G3 or anyway a non-altivec computer?

I noticed that using GS applications (compiled from source, not debian packages) I am unable to open JPEG files, I get an Illegal instruction.

(gdb) bt

The GS code is quite well tested on many platforms and hasn't chaged recently, so I want to be reassured that jpegturbo works also on PPC without altivec or anyway works.

I what test program could I use? I noticed that e.g. Firefox (which works) is not linked against it.
