I probably broke the link myself since I had it on another computer.

I read the Makefile and it said to ./configure -s to make the shared
library and that worked perfectly, as did make install.
I now have never versions in /usr/local/lib of
libjpeg, libpng libpng12 libtiff and libz (and also an mplayer directory
with a vidix subdirectory that I don't know what to do with yet).
I have libtiff.so.3.6.1 from April 26, 2005 (not yet 3.8.0, which I need
to compile). I wonder where it came from.
May I delete older versions in /usr/lib?

After running ./configure, the libtiff Makefile refers to g++ (CXX=g++).
HAVE_CXX_FALSE = #
Does this mean I do or do not have g++?
It also referrs to autoconfi and autorun and other things which I presume
it determined the presence of when I ran configure such as i586.
I then tried to compile libtiff and ./configure passed cpp and everything
else. But then make ran for a little while and gave me a lot of warnings
and parse errors and things in tiff_dirread.c, and then exited with:
make: *** [tif_dirread.lo] Error 1
and it left /src/tiff/libtiff.
This directory has a lot of triplets of files in it, up through
tif_direinfo.c .lo and .o, in alphabetical order, but only tif_dirread.o
and .loT (it exited before making an .lo and then an .o which is use to
make the .so and .a?) so it seems to have gotten stuck on making
tif_dirread.lo. The .loT file has only a few lines in #.
What do I do next, try the SW91 compiler? Compile without this one file?
Is there any reason for anyone to install the SW71 compiler (egcs) instead
of gcc-2.95.3 or .4 or .5, other than having it on the CD?

MANIFEST.gz lists libjpeg.a (same size as what I compiled) and
libjpeg.so.62.0.0, which I have in /usr/lib already (probably installed so
that links2 and zgv would work). Apparently version 6b, which I downloaded
and compiled, though it is from 27-Mar-1998, is the latest stable version
and there was no need to download the source code and compile it.
For some reason I was unable to compile the libjpeg.so anyway.
There is nothing about 'shared' in the Makefile.
'make install-libs' installs only libjpeg.a and a few .h files.
Why might the .so file not have been compiled?
I had libpng.so.22.214.171.124 and just compiled 126.96.36.199
I have libtiff.so.3.6.1 and want 3.8.0 from Nov 3 2005.
(I may have compiled these while compiling ghostscript last April).

I would like it to work with SW71 that has glibc.2.2.5 upgrade.
Do I need the latest libtiff for multipage tiffs? I read the changlog for
3.7.4 > 3.8.0 and they don't mention that, but they fixed a few bugs.
Even if an older libtiff will work, I should fix whatever is wrong with my
setup to make compiling work on other things later.
Please advise how to compile libtiff.
I am trying now to compile netpbm with the older libtiff 3.6.1
Netpbm configure 'cannot find the link library for SVGALIB'. I have
installed the svgalib package and have /usr/lib/svgalib so I typed that in
as the location.
'make' cannot find asm/errno.h
I fixed this with:
ln -s /usr/src/linux-2.2.16/include/asm /usr/include/asm
Should I have simply linked:
ln -s /usr/src/linux-2.2.16/include /usr/include
I vaguely recall breaking this link a year or two ago and fixing it on the
computer I was compiling on (where the hard drive died) but I thought
reinstalling linuxinc should have fixed it here.
Now it exited with a different error regarding [ilbmtoppm.o]
/tmp/ccGeilCG.s: Assembler messages:
/tmp/ccGeilCG.s:2533: no such 386 instruction: 'filds'
(ditto) 2540 (ditto).
I found 80 hits for 'no such 386 instruction: 'filds'.
Various people got similar error messages related to Assembler and
/tmp/cc??????.s:????: Error: no such 386 instruction: 'filds'
Someone's suggested explanation and solution:
'C compiler churned out the assembler code for the architecture that
Assembler can't digest. Try to use -mcpu=i686 -march=i586'
(This did not work for someone compiling LFS).
Someone else had trouble compiling gimp on a K6 II 350 but their friend
compiled it okay on a PII.
Another person, using gcc-2.95.1 and binutils (for Assembler), compiled
perfectly on a PII, but on a PI 'it seems like nothing will compile
anymore'. The suggested solution, putting DEFAULT_ASSEMBLER=/usr/bin/as
(as is the assembler) before configure statements, did not help them.
Someone else's solution was to use different RPM source code.
I can test this on the PII, but most of my computers are PI (AMD K6 II).
Same problem with Redhat 6.1 and egcs 2.91.66. Compiler/assembler
mismatch was a suggested diagnosis.
David, which 'as' did you use?
SW7.1 has 'as' 188.8.131.52.25 and SW8.1 has 184.108.40.206.9
SW71 'as' is only 168K - can I just upgrade that one file and add the
(unsymlinked) dependency libbfd-*.so? How do I extract a file with tar?
SW71 contribs has binutils 220.127.116.11.42, 1.2MB
SW81 binutils is 2.3MB, compressed and I have the CD.
