You have not stated which VLC version and under which conditions you are 
trying to build VLC. I guess you are cross-compiling, are you?

You need to compile Qt Embedded with jpeglib I think you did not. Or you 
have not included the headerfiles in the include path. Anyway the 
configure script did not find a build environment suited for building 
VLC against Qt Embedded.

Look at the buildscript "ipkg/rules.opie" in the VLC source code tree 
and read vlc/doc/arm-crosscompile-howto.sgml

Do not assume you have never made a mistake ;-)

The qte module for VLC has not been touched for a long time and is 
probably not in a good shape at the moment. It needs an active 
maintainer to further develop it and finish the Qt Embedded port of VLC.
