Oops, forgot the attachment. Here it is again.

================================================
Would the following patch make any chance to be
included in libtiff-3.5.3?

Rationale: In order to produce a Windows dll,
VC++ (and currently Borland and gcc as well)
support the "__declspec(dllexport)" tag to specify
which symbols should be exported. It would
make my life (and I'm sure a lot others) much
easier for me if libtiff included this in the
header files.

The implementation in this patch is identical
to the implementation in zlib-1.1.3. This
library has Windows support since ages.

If someone is interested in the Makefiles for
VC++ (4.x, 5.0, 6.0) or gcc-2.95 (mingw or cygwin
variant), I can supply those as well. I
successfully compiled libtiff with VC++ 5.0
and gcc-2.95-mingw, so if someone is interested
in those dll's, I can supply them as well.

Regards,
