you don't use ld.so.conf when compiling. the runtime linker uses that

check it's man page to understand it's output. and run it against the
.a file. quite simply, try:
nm /usr/lib/libjpeg.a | grep symbol-your-linker-claims-it-cannot-find
also, i never saw your first message, if you still have problems include
