It has its own copy of tif_fax3.h (which includes TIFFFaxTabEnt)... 

https://sourceforge.net/p/hylafax/HylaFAX+/HEAD/tree/trunk/faxd/tif_fax3.h
(https://sourceforge.net/p/hylafax/HylaFAX+/HEAD/tree/trunk/faxd/tif_fax3.h)

Again, I have no doubt whatsoever that this could all be done cleaner/
better.  I'm just saying that it is what it is.

OK, I'll revert that with a prominent warning so that the next one that 
touches this code is aware of those tricky aspects that cannot be 
anticipated from libtiff code itself.

Thanks.  If you want to provide a code change for HylaFAX then I'm happy to

consider it.

In my opinion that'd be better, as at this point affected users will need to
upgrade *something*. Given that hylafax includes a "fork" of tif_fax3.h, it 
should also include a fork of tif_fax3sm.c, not import the tables (which are
arguably leaked implementation detail) from libtiff.
