Hi Ruediger,

some points to your questions.

1. Be aware that enflate/deflate is a "private" compression format in TIFF.

2. libtiff has a packages structure - some packages always included, for some we should write a -with- at configure. For the "new" Windows version I don't know ( I am using beta037 ), but there should be only a -D... in the compiler call and an extended link call.

Look into the HTML description;
->Modifying the TIFF Library->Library Configuration and
->Building the software distirbution->Building on a UNIX System
->Configuring Optional Packages/Support

3. You need the zlib from Jean-loup Gailly and Mark Adler.

http://www.gzip.org

If you have little time and you would since years know what a "perpetual motion machine" in data compression is, look to Jean-loup's home page. There is more background too.

4. For a "full" libtiff version you need libjpeg also. But be aware, you never got the "old" JPEG version from libtiff. The support is for the "new" version with ID 7 in the compression tag ( TTN 2).
