Details

A number of files in the directory media/libjpeg:

./gecko/media/libjpeg/jsimd.h
./gecko/media/libjpeg/jsimd_none.c
./gecko/media/libjpeg/jsimddct.h

have a license header like this:

"For conditions of distribution and use, see copyright notice in jsimdext.inc"

However, that file isn't in the directory. This code comes from libjpeg-turbo, and the file in question is here:
http://svn.code.sf.net/p/libjpeg-turbo/code/trunk/simd/jsimdext.inc

Even if we don't compile it, it seems to me that the easiest thing to do to make sure the licensing situation is clear is to check in a copy.

Ryan: given you did bug 987002, is this something you can sort out?

There's actually a new release of libjpeg-turbo coming soonish. I'm going to mark a dep for now and will make sure it gets included in that.
