i was wondering if anyone has gotten any version of libtiff to compile on Mac OSX which as far as I know is a version of BSD at the bottom. if so, could you enlighten me?

I ve got tiff-v3.5.6-beta.tar.gz to compile on Darwin 1.2.1 and on Darwin 1.3.1. But I had to replace the config.guess from libtiff with the one from /usr/libexec/ and I had to comment out the line that says:

        MACHDEPLIBS=-lm                         # machine-dependent libraries for apps

in configure. After this

make install

went fine. There is a newer version on the server: tiff-v3.5.7-alpha.tar.gz. In this version the above patched have not to be applied. But this version didn't build neighter on Darwin 1.2.1 nor Darwin 1.3.1. Of course, your milleage may vary. If you get to compile this please tell me.

BTW. Frank Warmerdam <warmerdam@pobox.com> who maintains libtiff asked me for help on the above topic since he could not reproduce the problems I had. His special quest was for access to my machine so he could look what is going wrong. Since this was not possible (I am sitting in a private Subnet behind a firewall) I ask you if you could possibly help in this case. I would appreciate this very much since I am also interested in any progress here.
