We're running with Solaris 10.

Jim,

I would review the configure output carefully to try and establish if everything necessary for large file access is being done. In my output on 64bit linux I see:

checking for special C compiler options needed for large files... no checking for _FILE_OFFSET_BITS value needed for large files... no

...

   C compiler:                         gcc -g -DDEBUG -Wall -W
   C++ compiler:                       g++ -g -DDEBUG

which seems related. Beyond this you could try and write a small test program that uses the low level TIFF io layer to seek to 2.5GB and read something and see if it gets the right result as a way of estalishing whether this is the issue.

Best regards,
