I was trying to install TIFF 3.7.0beta2 and during the installation, some compile-time errors were encountered. I am using MSYS on ym Win2k and its built-in compiler system and so, I used the configure script. I also have another MinGW compiler system and the MinGW GCC distributed with Dev-C++, an IDE for Windows.

Hmmm, I just gave it a try and see that you are correct. There are compilation problems to attend to. The compilation problems look easy to resolve. I see errors like

.libs/lt-tiffdump.c: In function `check_executable':
.libs/lt-tiffdump.c:156: `S_IXOTH' undeclared (first use in this function)
.libs/lt-tiffdump.c:156: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
.libs/lt-tiffdump.c:156: for each function it appears in.)
.libs/lt-tiffdump.c:157: `S_IXGRP' undeclared (first use in this function)

There is an error regarding a prototype problem with eof as well.

I will work on this in a few days unless someone beats me to it.
