OK. Just to be clear, you took a jpeg-format image file and used jpegtopnm 
to convert it to a pnm file, and got a correct .pnm image file out? Did 
you do this to verify the exit code from jpegtopnm:

     echo $?

It looks to me like SA is just reporting an error code from jpegtopnm. I 
did some brief digging and couldn't find anything about that particular 
error code, it might take a look at the sources to learn what it means.

Bummer, so much for the easy explanation... :)

Do you have a sample message having an image attachment that you can run 
through SA manually to test things? If not, try to get one.

It would be useful to see the debugging output of spamassassin where it's 
talking about fuzzyocr. Do you know how to run spamassassin in debug mode 
against a test message?
