After looking through the archive history, I noted that 3.7 is a step towards not using only .h files only for setup, and that compiler specific make files are now being used.

Indeed, that seems to be the problem here.

I personally don't use makefiles and the lot, and have compiled LibTiff without them, with Borland C++ Builder 5.00. To enable this, I've added the following to the top of tif_config.h.

#define AVOID_WIN32_FILEIO 1
#define HAVE_STRING_H 1
#define NDEBUG
#define LZW_SUPPORT 1
#define NEXT_SUPPORT 1
#define JPEG_SUPPORT 1
#define ZIP_SUPPORT 1
#define CMYK_SUPPORT 1
#define ICC_SUPPORT 1

I know that Andrey really preferes makefiles, and I feel there's very good reason to trust his judgement. Thus, if you do succeed in making things work with BCB, with makefile, please consider contributing the necessary bits and pieces.
