Hello all,

I am trying to install HylaFax on Mac OS X 10.2.3 and libtiff is required.

I have downloaded and installed libtiff 3.5.7 and ran the normal ./configure, make and make install and all seemed to do well.

When I went to install HylaFax I got the following error:

... checking TIFF library version

Missing TIFF Library.

Compilation of the following test program failed:

----------------------------------------------------------
#include "tiffio.h"
main()
{
     printf( "header_ver=%d lib_ver=%s", TIFFLIB_VERSION, 
TIFFGetVersion() );
     exit(0);
}
----------------------------------------------------------

TIFFINC=/usr/local/include LIBTIFF=-L/usr/local/lib -ltiff

Verify that you have the TIFFINC and LIBTIFF configuration parameters set correctly for your system (see above) and that any environment variables are setup that are needed to locate a libtiff DSO at runtime (e.g. LD_LIBRARY_PATH). Also be sure that any relative pathnames are made relative to the top of the build area.

Unrecoverable error! Once you've corrected the problem rerun this script.

I understand that this is not a HylaFax support forum (I am asking the same question on the Hylafax list) but I was hoping that some smart persona on this list might see an obvious solution to my problem.

I can't locate tiffio.h on my system so I am assuming that my libtiff install did not run correctly.

Any ideas out there?

Thanks,

Dan
