   Lee et al....

   I did discover the problem, and yes, it was a change to libtiff. I had
   compiled libtiff many many moons back, before SGI adopted it into their
   standard distribution. I keep my (up to date) copy in /usr/local/lib. 

   When the OS was upgraded, SGI mod'd /usr/lib/libtiff.so, as well as
   /usr/lib32/libtiff.so, and that broke Hylafax. 

   I have (temporarily) moved /usr/lib[32]/libtiff.so away, and linked them
   to mine in /usr/local/lib/libtiff.so, and all seems OK. (I am waiting to
   see what other system routines break with my "fix" to libtiff.so in the
   /usr/lib path). 

   I am thinking about possibly remaking hylafax with the system versions of
   libtiff.so (and see if that works).

   thanks again
