Hi libtiff developers!
We just upgraded to libtiff v4.6.0 and want to build it with our recently added libjpeg-turbo v3.0.0.
Unfortunately we had to symbol version libjpeg-turbo on Linux (on top of its existing symbol versions) to avoid symbol collisions with other libjpeg versions. As part of this work, we slightly modified the libjpeg-turbo shared library name on Linux, Mac, and Windows - for example on Linux, instead of the shared library libjpeg.so.62.4.0, we named it libmwjpeg.so.62.4.0.
In our libtiff makefile, we use configure on Linux and Mac and CMake on Windows. I think I figured out the CMake option to link libtiff to our libjpeg-turbo DLL, but I'm not sure how to modify the libtiff configure scripts to get Linux and Mac to do the same.
I see in the libtiff main folder there's both a configure and configure.ac file, and both have commands that link to libjpeg - "-ljpeg". I tried changing this in both files to "-lmwjpeg" instead but that didn't work. Could you please let me know which file or files I need to modify, and whether I need to manually run autoconf or similar tools after I make the change?
Thank you so much!
