Hello Tiff folks, remember me? ;-)

I am building libtiff for sparc-sun-solaris2.10 and can't get it to link

against the non-system libz and libjpeg.

Note that I tell it to look for zlib and jpeg in /usr/dist/share/..., but the

compiled binaries link against /usr/lib:

Is there something I am missing?

I never use libtiff configure's "helper" arguments so I can't say if they work. However, it is important that the libraries you install are shared libraries because the linker will turn its nose up at a static library and use a shared library instead even if the static library is in the linker search path first.

Luckily, I built that libz and know that I included --shared.

When in doubt about what is actually being tested, look in config.log and see what the compiler was trying to do.

Thanks for the pointer. These seem to be the relevant lines from config.log for tiff. Looks like everything passes.

I'm a little stuck here.
