There isn't one. Not just the struct has changed substantially in the move 
to support BigTIFF, but also its usage changed drastically if I remember 
correctly.

May I ask what it's being used for? At the time, LibTIFF maintainers 
including myself figured it's highly unlikely LibTIFF calling code used that 
structure, so we would be very interested to see how and why HylaFAX is 
using it.


Best regards,

Joris
