I have recently been trying to use the tiff library provided by Sam Leffler
with the application ImageMagick by John Cristy.  When I built the tiff
library, it only created a standard library file (.a) and not a shared library
(.so).  Normally, ImageMagick expects to use the shared library version.  Since
one wasn't created, I simply linked in the standard library with ImageMagick.
The seemed fine until I tried to link in the tiff library with ImageMagick
which produced the error message "Unresolved:  __eprintf".

After using the "ld -y" command to determine where the unresolved was being
used.  I discovered it was being called from several places in the tiff
library, with tif_read.c being one of those files.  I searched on the call to
eprintf, but could not find this reference throughout any of the .c or .h files
in all of the tiff library.  I also checked any possible standard header files
that might reference eprintf.  Much to my discouragement, I could not locate
any reference to eprintf.  I then searched all the standard libraries for a
reference to eprintf and found this in /usr/lib/X11/dyDDX/  But
attempts to link against this library failed due to an invalid magic number.

Does anyone have an idea of how to resolve this problem?  I would really
appreciate any help you might be able to provide.

The system I am using is an SGI Indy R4600/133 MHZ running IRIX 5.3.
 Additionally, I am using the beta035 version of tiff 3.4.

Thanks in advance for your help.
