Hallo tiff developers,

Testing libtiff I have found there many bugs and problems:

configure:

Configuring sed script is buggy. It works for old GNU sed, but not, for example, for GNU sed 3.02.80. Replacing of empty string is bad idea. fix: filter configure by following sed script :-) s:/@:s;@:;s:/s;;:;:

The configure script also does not include support for Apple's Mac OS X Server. (I've pointed this out before; see the list archives.)

Manually specifying --host=powerpc-apple-rhapsody5.5 to configure and then hacking the generated Makefiles creates working tools and libraries, though.

     CAN ANYBODY HELP WITH THIS PROBLEM? I have tried contact Adobe

The Group 4 Fax compression standard is available as a PDF that can be downloaded from the ITU for a nominal fee. It's at < http://www.itu.int//itudoc/itu-t/rec/t/index.html>.
