With a universal binary version of libtiff (3.8.2 and 3.9beta) the reading of little endian tiffs on a G4 PPC fails with every application.

Is this a known issue? What would be the best way to overcome these errors?

Does the problem have anything to do with the library being built as a universal binary?

I am using libtiff 3.8.0 on an Apple G5 without noticing any endian issues. I am using libtiff 3.9.0beta on a Sun SPARC system without issues. However, I do believe that 3.8.2 had severe issues on the Sun system.

It is not uncommon for various libtiff releases to experience issues on big-endian systems.
