Testing libtiff I have found there many bugs and problems:
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 :-)
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 developer support to obtain detailed specification of G4 compression but without result. Peter Deutsch, author of ghostscript, used different code, so testing on gs will not help.
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>.
