Hadn't thought of that, but will definitely check
I found it very strange they'd drop jpeg support
by default, but then some of the pages I read said
it was done for copyright reasons.
Unfortunately, the pages I found for fixes, all
concerned FreeBSD ports packages.
I'll first try and get 6.2.2 to build for tiffs
and jpegs, and then resort to getting tiff-devel
and trying the 5.x source that I have.
I know developers are not supposed to play sys
admin, but clients seem to ask me to try what I
can, and as long as I'm not messing with mission
critical production sites they seem happy to let
me have a shot.
