Most very likely my 7cba764 commit, ‘icecat: Use libjpeg-turbo instead
of bundled libjpeg’[-turbo].

The ‘libjpeg-turbo’ package depends on ‘nasm’, which I didn't realise
was only supported on x86.

I'll take a look. IceCat's bundled ‘libjpeg’ is really the (a?) -turbo
variant, so it shouldn't matter, but I obviously missed something.

While a valid sentiment, that's not what happened here.

Kind regards,
