Yep, that's rather unlikely to work unless the DLL is built the exact
same way and probably with the same compiler. It takes a lot of care to
make sure a DLL has a compatible ABI irrespective of the compiler used
etc and given libjpeg's age and general state the chances of that having
been done are about zero.

This could very easily be a Scribus bug rather than a libjpeg issue.
libjpeg hasn't changed in a rather long time.

If it's always the same images, filing a bug with the images attached
and some instructions on how to make the problem happen might help.
