Oookkkk.... I officially have no idea what is happening.
I grabbed the current cvs and did a ./configure. It complained about not being able to mv libtoolT to libtool (or something like that). An "ls -al" showed no libtool file, but I *could* see it in the Windoze explorer. However, I couldn't open it or delete it (complained that another application had the file open).
I shut everything down and rebooted the computer. Then the libtool file really was gone. Now a "./configure; make; make check" actually does work.
Now that I've got a working libtiff I must figure out why the ./configure in libgeotiff isn't finding it. (But, that's for another forum.)
Thanks for the guidance.
OBTW, does anyone know what must be done to submit the libtiff 3.7.2 package for inclusion in cygwin?
I keep getting errors either during the ./configure or, if that succeeds, during the make that complain about unexpected end of file while searching for a matching quote or sometimes matching double quote.
I can't give you the exact error right now, though. I cannot get to the CVS from my office and thus can only use the release version unless I bring in my own cvs tarball. (There isn't any way to get a nightly cvs tarball linked to the project webpage, is there?)
I will try to provide more information in a couple hours.
OBTW, this is what I get from uname -a:
CYGWIN_NT-5.0 CTS1-215 1.5.13(0.122/4/2) 2004-03-01 11:01 i686 unknown unknown Cygwin
I work until beer o'clock

I just tried current CVS snapshot under Cygwin and it works fine (./configure; make; make check). What configure problem do you have?
$ uname -a
CYGWIN_NT-5.0 rose 1.5.9(0.112/4/2) 2004-03-18 23:05 i686 unknown unknown Cygwin
(quite outdated, I know).
I hate raising flags about problems I encounter at work.
Too often, after a little more thought I realize the flag actually says,
"Warning! There is an idiot standing under this flag!"
