In order to get libtiff CVS to recognize my OpenGL GLUT installation under Solaris, I had to add

   'LIBS=-lGL -lGLU -lSM -lICE -lX11 -lXext -lXmu'

to the configure script arguments. The configure script does not provide the necessary prerequsites so the GLUT library can never be found.

I also had to manually edit the libtiff/tif_config.h file since configure decided that the types `u_char', `u_int', `u_long', and `u_short' were available, however, these types were not available to the headers at compile-time. This seems to be a new problem since I have not seen it before.
