Is it possible to build-in JBIG support into libtiff with an external library, say, with JBIG-KIT?


It is possible, in the sense that you can write the necessary glue code and register the additional codec in LibTiff. To see how, consult the codec units, like e.g. tif_jpeg.c interfacing with LibJpeg, or tif_zip.c interfacing with ZLib, and also take a look at tif_codec.c where the individual codecs are registered.

It is not possible in the sense of simply setting a compiler option, because that necessary glue code is not included in LibTiff. If you write it, please consider contributing it.
