I just did a default MSVC 2005 build under Win64 and it was building tif_unix.c, is that intended?
Probably not. The change actually applies to the Unixish configure script. I noticed the change when using MinGW32/GCC. I noticed because libtiff tool warnings resulted in a Windows pop-up dialog box.
While it is possible to support large files under Windows using tif_unix.c code, it requires additional tweaks to use 64-bit versions of the offset APIs.
The MSVC build is virtually unmaintained since none of the current libtiff maintainers personally care about it. Patches/fixes and tender loving care are appreciated.
I haven't had a chance to run my own primitive integration regression tests on it yet but I'll give a holler if anything is amiss.
