Thanks for creating this.
I wanted to push a simple fix (PIL mail fail -> PIL may fail), but I
have no write access. Maybe something needs to be fixed since this
started out on your own github account.
The script complains about a missing jpeglib.h, but when I tell it to
continue PIL gets compiled just fine. Uploading a jpeg works fine too,
including creating the extra sizes. This is on Mac OSX 10.6.8, both
with the standard Mac Python and with a Python from buildout.python with
a virtualenv in front (and with PIL already installed actually). So it
does not include the directory containing jpeglib.h. Not sure how that
would be solvable in a generic way. But anyway, PIL is working for me.
