According to Synaptic libjpeg-prog is "empty dummy package that depends on default JPEG library implementation.  It can be safely removed."
On my system it is not installed. Maybe you should runaptitude why libjpeg-prog to find out why it is installed. I suppose you could purge this package if you have libjpeg-turbo-progs installed.
See https://packages.debian.org/jessie/libjpeg-progs and https://packages.debian.org/jessie/libjpeg-turbo-progs

Correct..

In my case I need  libjpeg-turbo-progs for xscreensaver

Appears that libjpeg-prog is not needed. (best to check for your own systems)... ;)

gene@sid:~$ aptitude why libjpeg-prog
E: No package named "libjpeg-prog" exists.

gene@sid:~$ aptitude why libjpeg-turbo-progs
i   xscreensaver        Recommends libjpeg-progs
iBA libjpeg-turbo-progs Provides   libjpeg-progs
