Subject: ANNOUNCE: DJGPP port of library TIFF 4.0.1 uploaded.
Date: Sat, 5 May 2012 11:31:12 +0200

This is a port of library TIFF 4.0.1 to MSDOS/DJGPP.

  DJGPP specific changes.

  This port requires the use of the CVS version of snprintf.  Other minor djgpp
  specific changes are documented in the diffs file.  Apart from these changes
  only the usual configuration files have been added, especialy sed scripts to
  fix the libtool files (ltmain and ltconfig).  They are located in the /djgpp
  directory.  As for all binaries and libraries that handle images of any kind,
  it should be noted that files (streams) are *always* openend in binary mode
  with all the well known implications on a DOS/WINDOWS OS if the stream is
  connected to STDIN and/or STDOUT when these are still connected to the console.
  For ppm2tiff.exe, tiff2pdf.exe and iptcutil.exe both SIGINT and SIGQUIT are
  reenabled if stdin and/or stdout is connected to console.

  To configure and compile the package and later to use it, you will have to
  install the zlib, ljpeg8b and the png port available at and
  mirrors as:
  Of course, you can download a newer version of zlib, png and jpeg if
  available.  The zlib, png and jpeg stored in /current have been compiled
  with djdev203 and those ones from /beta are compiled with djgpp204 beta.

  Please note that you will need LFN support to be able to configure, compile
  and to run the testsuite of the package.
  The source package is now distributed configured for both DJGPP 2.03 and
  DJGPP 2.04.  In the top srcdir there is a "_build.203" directory and a
  "_build.204" directory.  If for some reason you need to reconfigure the
  sources delete the complete contain of the _build.20[34] directory and
  run the following command:
    ..\djgpp\config.bat ./..
  If for some reason the configuration step fails simply keep config.cache and
  start the above command a second time.
  Please read the docs.  There are no info formated docs.  All the extensive
  documentation is html formated and placed in /share/doc/libtiff4.0-1/html

  The port has been compiled using stock djdev203 (patchlevel 2) and consists
  of the two packages that can be downloaded from and mirrors
  as (timestamp 2012-05-02):
