It works for me. I used to have a problem with static builds. It would fail
to link because it was missing a bunch of jpeg functions. That was
happening because -ljpeg was too early in the link line. I tracked it down
to /usr/X11R6/etc/ which is part of gnomeprint. This gets called
from 'gnome-config --libs gnomeui print'. I'm pretty sure that the real
problem was somewhere in gnome-config. It has something to do with how it
strips duplicate libs and the interaction between doing gnomeui and print at
the same time.
