1996.12.28 02:48 "(Small) bug in tiff-v3.4 configure script", by Rene Hoejbjerg Larsen

I believe I have found a minor bug in tiff-v3.4, or more precisely in the configure script. Shared Library Support doesn't work "out of the box" on Linux systems since there is a missing asterisk in the case pattern for Linux on line 1129 in ./configure. Specifically:

    *-linux)

should be changed to

    *-linux*)

which is actually pretty obvious when comparing with the case patterns for the other OS's. I assume it is just a typo but nevertheless I think it should be fixed in the next release/patch level, since it can cause some grief when trying to compile libtiff as a shared library (it took me more than an hour to track down the problem).
