As described in my previous message in this thread, I couldn't get libtiff to build using the MS VC compiler. So I decided to try using MinGW instead. Got a lot farther with that approach, but still ran into another problem here:

(Note: ran ./configure prior to running make)

libtool: compile:
 -I. -I. -I/c/GnuWin32/include -I/c/GnuWin32/include -g -O2 -Wall -W -MT
tif_zip.lo -MD -MP -MF .deps/tif_zip.Tpo -c tif_zip.c -o tif_zip.o
 >/dev/null 2>&1

make[2]: *** No rule to make target `libtiff-dllversion.lo', needed by `libtiff.la'. Stop.

make[2]: Leaving directory `/c/GnuWin32/src/tiff/3.8.2/tiff-3.8.2-src/libtiff' make[1]: *** [all] Error 2

make[1]: Leaving directory `/c/GnuWin32/src/tiff/3.8.2/tiff-3.8.2-src/libtiff' make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

And as far as I can tell, the missing rule that it complains about really is missing from makefile and wasn't in makefile.in either. I would be happy to add the rule myself, except that I have absolutely no clue what needs to happen in order to built this particular module (libtiff-dllversion.lo).

Can anyone out there give me a clue on this one?

BTW, I haven't yet received any replies to my previous help request, and sometimes I have problems with email to my subscribed address coming through. So, if you can't reach me by simply replying to this message, then please give me another try using KevinMyers (at) austin.rr.com.
