Hello,

I am having trouble getting libtiff to build as a shared library. First I do ./configure --with-DSO. This seems to do the right thing. Then I run make. Everything seems to be working until I get to this point:

if [ yesdso != nodso ]; then \
    make yesdso; \
else \
    true; \
fi
make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/tiff-v3.5.4/libtiff'
make[2]: *** No rule to make target `yesdso'. Stop.
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/tiff-v3.5.4/libtiff'
make[1]: *** [all] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/tiff-v3.5.4/libtiff'
make: *** [all] Error 2

And this is as far as I get. I can build it fine as a static library, but that is not what I need. I am using a stock Red Hat 6.1 system on an Intel box, pretty standard stuff.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
