I just fetched tiff-3.7.0 and tried to build it (on a linux/gnu system).

In order to do so successfully I had to apply the attached patch. Without the patch the '.so' was missing in all shared library names.

Oops! The the missing .so is due to mis-matched auto-tools being installed. I have encountered this once before. This problem means that the release is broken. It is not strictly a libtool bug.

NB: there is a libtool-1.5.6 around, so why not upgrade?

There is actually a libtool 1.5.10 around, and it seems likely that libtool 2.0 will be released within a month or even a week.
