jpeg 8b related base/jpeg.mak change 

Just trying to see what changes between jpeg 6b and jpeg 8b.

The attached patch updated the base/jpeg.mak - in jpeg 8b jdphuff.c no longer
exists, but its function seems to be served by jdarith.c (and jcarith.c encoder
part is added).

As for the jpeg/ directory - jdmarker.c contains some bug fixes from Raph
Levien which were never sent upstream; and need to revert r11471 which updated
config.guess/config.sub to an intermediate version, before the jpeg6b->jpeg8b
is applied.

Apparently there are some incompatibility (enhancement...) between 8b and 6b,
and jpegs written by 8b involving the new SmoothScale functionality may not be
readable by 6b, so this change probably should be regarded as something for the
long term.

e.g. when Linux distros start to ship jpeg 8b (some are shipping jpeg 7), one
might want to follow. Also the jdmarker.c change from Raph probably needs to go
