I have to admit that I am very new to libtiff and fairly new to UNIX based development in general. I am currently trying to install libtiff v3.4 on Solaris 2.6. I have successfully run the configure script but when running make I encounter the following error:

*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `tif_fax3sm.c'
Current working directory /usr/libtiff/tiff-v3.4/libtiff
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `all'

Is this a common problem? Can anyone offer me any tips or better yet point me to a more complete HOWTO then the sgi site?

While I am asking, are there any sites that you folks recommend for more information on libtiff? Thanks in advance.

The problem is that there is no tif_fax3sm.c file in the distribution. To make this work copy tiff-v3.4/contrib/winnt/fax3sm.c to tiff-v3.4/libtiff/tif_fax3sm.c. Then try your make again. The file fax3sm.c defines some structures that are declared as externals in tif_fax3.h. You can remove tif_fax3sm.c from the makefile, but then you will need to define these structures in any programs that use libtiff.lib.
