[alpine-devel] Please enable jpeg/png decoders on Python Imaging Library

Hi there,

I installed py-imaging-1.1.7-r3.apk on a machine with Alpine Linux 2.4, and
the package got installed correctely (libjpeg and zlib are installed).
However, when I use PIL to manipulate JPEG image, I got the following
error: "IOError: decoder jpeg not available" (the same for PNG which has
decoder zip).
I think that this is caused by the settings in the defautlt file
for Python Imaging Library (Imaging-1.1.7/ which not support JPEG
and PNG, according to the following lines (line number 37-38):

Would you please be able to enable those decoders on the setup file and
rebuild a new package?

FYI: I tried to compile the source file on my machine, bu I got an error
fatal error: limits.h: No such file or directory", so I would prefer to get
the fix from upstream if possible.

Thank you,
