We had some problems with tiff-3.7.3, all minor, luckily.

On solaris it proved imposssible to build the c++ streams library without patching libtool. Should be fixed there fairly soon <http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/libtool-patches/2005-07/msg00101.html>.

On AIX there were a couple of issues, one was that the tif_streams.cxx needs to #include "tifconfig.h" first to get the _LARGE_FILES definition otherwise it does not build complainging about oddities with lseek64 and others.

There was also a problem with AIX and Int8 etc.

Patches attached.

Hello Peter,

Ok, your patches will be applied, thanks. By the way, I will be very grateful for the account on the AIX system. I have a bunch of problems with the AIX and they are not easy to solve without real system.

If somebody have a possibility to get me access to the AIX system, please, do. I shall try to polish the libtiff port on that platform.

Best regards,

Andrey V. Kiselev
