The 6.2 package as installed would not process
jpeg files, and after a lot of Googling I read
that jpeg support had been dropped by the default
install, and to get it back it was recommended to
go back to a 5.x ImageMagick install.
I tried to locate an FC4 rpm, but could not, so I
decided to take a shot at building it from source,
which did work for jpeg, but not for tiff's.
I then found this in the config.log file after the
configure:38414: checking tiff.h usability
configure:38426: gcc -c -g -O2 -Wall
-D_REENTRANT conftest.c >&5
conftest.c:148:18: error: tiff.h: No such file or
...and a similar line for tiffio.h
So I figured if I could locate these .h files and
get them and whatever package they came with
installed, recompile IM successfully, and I'd have
a good chance at getting both tiff and jpeg support.
Sorry for not explaining that up front.
