I apologize for being a complete jerk and reporting this a long long time after it happened, but I just went to upgrade our project's version of libtiff and it appears that OS X 10.6.8 support broke in libtiff 4.0.0 beta 7.
Until beta 7 there was a configure option
that caused the flag HAVE_APPLE_OPENGL_FRAMEWORK to be set to 1 in tif_config.h. This option seems to have been removed.
The option is needed to allow tiffgt.c to compile - the include paths for OpenGL (which are wanky on OSX) are correctly conditionalized).
This is not an issue on OS X 10.10.x because (for some reason) starting with libtiff 4.0.0 beta 7, configure stopped sensing OpenGL support on OS X entirely.
Anyway, if 10.6.8 support is supposed to work, I can do something more formal if someone can point me in the right direction, e.g. a bug base, a source code repo, or I can try to produce a patch file. I'm not sure what the desired behavior here is:
- Not support OpenGL on _any_ OS X or
- Support OpenGL on 10.6.8 and allow back the --with-apple-opengl-framework flag or
- Try to restore GL support on all OS X operating systems.
