[Interest] [Qt-iOS] How can I linked to libjpeg-turbo?

    First of all, thank you for the reply!
    libjpeg-turbo uses NEON instruction to accelerate decoding, it should
give significant performance boost. And since QImage will decode jpeg file
into ARGB pixel format which will introduce YUV-->RGB color space
conversion, it is slow to do it in CPU. The way I do it is to use
libjpeg-turbo to decode a jpeg file into YUV planar pixel buffer, and then
I will use GLES2 fragment shader to perform YUV->RGB color space conversion
by GPU and then display it in QtQuick's scene graph, that is the fastest
way I can imagine.
    The first way you have suggested require rebuilding qt-iOS, that is a
burden too heavy for us. In fact in Qt-5.3.2 days, We have to build Qt-iOS
with a patch to work around an landscape issue introduced in iOS 8, but I
have encountered many problems with the qt built by myself , such as I
can't use it in QtCreator but I can use it in xcode(I don't know why :-) ).
    The second way require modification of libjpeg-turbo ( maybe remove the
entire old libjpeg style API ) which is beyond me.

    Is it possible to solve this issue by some kind of linker magic? For
example, MSVC support #pragma comment(lib, "lib"), that will only link the
lib inside the specific object file. But I can't find the equivalent thing
in clang.
    And there is one thing I can't understand: xcode didn't ship libjpeg in
its iOS SDK and I can't find libjpeg shipped with Qt-iOS, then where is the
libjpeg library Qt-iOS linked by default?
