<x-flowed>Simple Question: How do I place the IFD at the beginning of the file (after the header)?

I'm building a TIF with LIBTIFF, and it places the directory after the
strip. I'd like to
place it in the front of the file (behind the header).
I'm basically doing this:
TIFOpen ()
TIFCreateDirectory ()
TIFSetField ()
TIFSetField ()
...
loop - TIFWriteScanLine ()
TIFClose ()

Rearraning the TIFCreateDirectory didn't do it.

I know it doesn't matter, but we are trying to emulate
a component from a major vendor, and want to demonstrate that the image
files
are virtually identical. I don't want to get caught up in an
explaination to some
illiterate VP

Thanks for any help.
