Hi there!

I'm trying to stich huge panoramas with enblend, which for too big panoramas fails because of the 4GB limit of the non-big tiff file format.

Now the developers of enblend told me, that my problem lies with libtiff and that I should compile it manually to get bigtiff support. I did that, and since the output of enblend changed compared to with the libtiff version from my distro (Ubuntu 13.10), I guess my self-compiled libtiff version also gets used by enblend.

But it still fails to write an output tiff file that would be bigger than 4GB. Do I need some special configure switch to enable bigtiff? From what I've read libtiff supports bigtiff since version 4.0.0 and I've downloaded and compiled your latest release 4.0.3.

Here's the output of configure:

Libtiff is now configured for x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu

Can you help me? Do you know how to enable the use of bigtiff?

Thanks, Regards, Thomas K.
