Hi Bob,

Should any defines be duplicated in tif_config.h and tiffconfig.h? And what about port.h created by configure but not used anywhere?

What is the purpose of having both tif_config.h and tiffconfig.h?

tif_config.h is used only by the library and libtiff tools and is not installed.

tiffconfig.h needs to exist for legacy reasons (lots of applications depend on it). It includes "feature" defines so that applications can see what features are in the libtiff when the application is built. It includes basic type definitions needed by the installed tiff header files.
