See Slackware packages (which I am about to upload for 30 minutes):
The former is all the netpbm programs plus libnetpbm.10.31, statically
compiled to require glibc-2.2.5 (SW81), and the packages in the latter,
which also require 2.2.5.
The latter is libtiff.so.3.5.7 and tiff*.h from SW81, libpng and zlib
which I compiled (so and h) and some other png-related programs and man
ages which the png people thought needed installing. The .h files are
needed to compile anything else that requires these image libraries such
as links2, zgv, or ghostscript. To run netpbm you only need the lib*.so*
parts. You also need libjpeg.so latest version from 1998 for libc6 (SW71
glibc-2.2.5 from SW81 can be installed into BL2 (you can delete
lib/*-2.1.3*) or BL3 (it coexists with libc5 but will complicate
compiling for libc5).
I tested by installing these packages in another BL2. Make sure to remove
the libc5 libraries before using them or ldd will still think they need
libc5.so - I have no idea why. pnmtotiff is now a symlink to pamtiff.
All the old libc5 files were overwritten. jpegtopnm, pnmscale, pnmtotiff,
and pnmtopnm tested working. Other programs may not work, let me know.
> You explained how to make doinstall.sh with the symlinks
makepkg makes them for you.
> Two successes in 24 hours (lpr and netpbm). Next fb.modes.
First breakfast. It got to be 5:35 pm.
