Dear all,

I am currently trying to run a minimum build of libtiff. The only thing I need is to read images in tiff format in a win32 platform. I am doing so with libtiff using TIFFOpen and TIFFReadRGBAImage.

But because I want to keep my project as simple as possible, I don't want to include everything supported by libtiff, so I recompiled libtiff and unchecked all the option in nmake.opt.

But I would like to reduce it even more.

Is it possible to get rid of the multithread support?

My ideal would be to only include the functions of tiffio.h and that's it. Do you think it would be possible?

Also do you think it would be possible to use libtiff.lib without the dll?
