    You should grab a version of the xforms library for the version of libc that
    you'll use to compile lyx. xforms exists for both new and old libc/glibc. If
    you use xforms for libc5 and compile lyx with glibc then all will compile
    fine but the resulting binary will crash unexpectedly.

    This is, of course, independent to your jpeg question.
