1997.03.05 12:28 "Shared libtiff on HP/UX with gcc", by Ulrik Dickow

A nice new feature of v3.4beta036 is that `configure' now _almost_ knows how to build and use a shared libtiff on HP/UX systems with gcc (and HP's linker).

The one thing missing is to link the tools in such a way that they can still find libtiff.sl when it has been installed elsewhere and the build tree deleted. `configure' should therefore use exactly the same TIFFLIBREF for gcc as for non-gcc. The following patch does this, and also cleans up an obsolete comment:
