Hopefully this is the right place to send bug reports. When I tried the documented way to build libtiff 3.5.4 using Visual C++, I got this error:
NMAKE : fatal error U1073: don't know how to make 'fax3sm_winnt.obj'
After digging around in the distribution a little, I noticed fax3sm.c in contrib/winnt. The problem is solved by copying contrib/winnt/fax3sm.c to libtiff/fax3sm_winnt.c. I also copied over version.h for the hell of it but I'm not sure if this affects the build.
