Package gdal-bin

On Ubuntu 17.10 (Current packages as of March 2, 2018)
With gdal 2.2.1+dfsg-2build3

When converting a large NITF file (~26mb) to JPEG, I get the following
error:

e.g. gdal_translate -of JPEG mylarge.nitf mylarge.jpeg
Input file size is 30464, 22528
OERROR 1: libjpeg: Backing store not supported

I did some research into this and basically it appears that libjpeg-
turbo (which gdal is using to r/w JPEG's) recently starting honouring
max_memory_to_use (as of 1.5.2), and lacks a backing store
implementation (which is apparently some archaic way of mapping memory).

It looks like this is the appropriate fix in GDAL
https://github.com/OSGeo/gdal/commit/c515fa7eecc885ab59a3c717ad96415b9b2e7077

I believe this just needs to be incorported into the version in Ubuntu,
though further discussion and/or testing would be warranted.

It's pretty easy to replicate.. just try to write any large file with
gdal_translate (for reference, my 26mb JP2/NITF is roughly a 670mb bmp).
You get the same problem writing any large file with gdal_translate as
jpeg, it's not specific to JP2/NITF inputs.
