It's speaking in Linux (Red Hat / Debian) terms, where headers and
link-time libraries are always split out into -devel / -dev packages.
MacPorts does not do this; the normal port installs headers and link
libraries. (A -devel port in MacPorts means a beta, prerelease, or testing
version. Be aware that these can go stale after being promoted to being the
main port, and if the maintainer doesn't require a test version for
subsequent minor updates the -devel port can be older than the main one.)

I don't know if the jpeg port is up to date enough, but suspect it is
because there are a lot of things that depend on it and depend on it being
