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.
