22<para>The <application>libtiff</application> package contains the tiff libraries and associated
23utilities. The libraries are used by many programs for reading and
24writing tiff files and the utilities are useful for general work with

64<para><option>--noninteractive</option>: This switch is used to
65avoid the configuration routine asking for confirmation of the
66installation directories (which we pass to configure).</para>
67
68<para><parameter>--with-DIR_MAN=/usr/share/man</parameter>: This is used
69because despite the fact we pass <parameter>--prefix=/usr</parameter>, the
70configure routine tries to install the man pages in <filename
71class="directory">/usr/local/man</filename> instead of the correct
72place.</para>
73
74<para><parameter>--with-ZIP=yes --with-DIR_GZLIB=/usr/lib</parameter>: This
75enables support for the handling of <acronym>TIFF</acronym> images with
76deflate-encoded data.</para>
77
78<para><parameter>--with-JPEG=yes --with-DIR_JPEGLIB=/usr/lib</parameter>: Use
79these switches to enable support for the handling of <acronym>TIFF</acronym>
80images with <acronym>JPEG</acronym>-encoded data.</para>
