    Subject:  FreeBSD shared-library
    Date: Sun, 11 May 1997 19:41:15 PDT
    From:  Richard Mlynarik <>

    I've fixed what seems to be an obvious bug in Linux shared-library
    building, but I'm in no position to test it.  It looks like it would
    never have worked.

You have old code; beta036 has had this change since it was put out in Feb.
    I'd guess that code nearly-identical to the freebsd stuff would work
    for BSDI and NetBSD; I'm not able to verify this, either.

Again, the latest configure should work for BSDI and NetBSD.
    It would be nice if the mailing list archives in were maintained;
    I don't have time to be on a mailing list, but it would be nice to be
    able to search for things when I cared.

Sorry, can't help here.  There are issues with pushing stuff through our
firewall that keep me from updating the archive regularly.  If someone
wanted to host a web site for the TIFF archives I'd be happy to provide a
copy of my MLA tools that they could use to make the archives searchable
(look at for example).

If you have a chance please look at the current sources and send me a
non-GNU-style diff/patch (I tried applying the above but it failed).
