Hi all,

I got my libtiff build on AIX. When I try linking, with my app, I got error:

ld: 0706-006 Cannot find or open library file: -l tiff
        ld:open(): A file or directory in the path name does not exist.
gmake: *** [acl] Error 255

The linking is done as -L../opensrc/tiff/libtiff -ltiff. The path is correct.

In libtiff directory, I have only libtiff.la and there is no libtiff.a. Is this normal for libtiff?

Is the libtiff.la a shared library? How do I link my app with libtiff.la?

Thanks & Regards,

zaidee
