Hello everyone,

this is a reply to a message which was posted to this list on May the 21st 2007. It seems, that no real solution has been found until today.

Well, I came across the same problem with libtiff 3.8.2 on Solaris 10 x86.

The solution was quiet simple.

I used the linker which came with solaris and not the one I installed later.

So I changed my path using:
export PATH=/usr/ccs/bin:$PATH

So the ld under /usr/ccs/bin would be found first.

A "make clean" and "make" afterwards then did the job.

I hope, that this will help you too.
