trouble: gtk & libtiff or ltiff

checking for TIFFReadScanline in -ltiff... no
checking for TIFFWriteScanline in -ltiff... no
checking for TIFFFlushData in -ltiff34... no
configure: WARNING: *** TIFF loader will not be built (TIFF library not found) ***
configure: error:
*** Checks for TIFF loader failed. You can build without it by passing
*** --without-libtiff to configure but some programs using GTK+ may
*** not work properly
i installed libtiff from source. wtf.

i spent 3+ hours pouring through archived mailing lists, google, and these forums looking for a solution and have come up with nothing. im really at a dead end with this.

im running Darwin 8.3.0 underneath OS X 10.4.3

thanks in advance

Do a configure --help for options. maybe there is a switch with --with-libtiff-dir=/usr/local/lib

hiptop:~/downloads/nix/gtk+-2.6.9 Cam$ ./configure --help
`configure' configures gtk+ 2.6.9 to adapt to many kinds of systems.

Usage: ./configure [OPTION]... [VAR=VALUE]...

To assign environment variables (e.g., CC, CFLAGS...), specify them as
VAR=VALUE.  See below for descriptions of some of the useful variables.

Defaults for the options are specified in brackets.

  -h, --help              display this help and exit
      --help=short        display options specific to this package
      --help=recursive    display the short help of all the included packages
  -V, --version           display version information and exit
  -q, --quiet, --silent   do not print `checking...' messages
      --cache-file=FILE   cache test results in FILE [disabled]
  -C, --config-cache      alias for `--cache-file=config.cache'
  -n, --no-create         do not create output files
      --srcdir=DIR        find the sources in DIR [configure dir or `..']

Installation directories:
  --prefix=PREFIX         install architecture-independent files in PREFIX
  --exec-prefix=EPREFIX   install architecture-dependent files in EPREFIX

By default, `make install' will install all the files in
`/usr/local/bin', `/usr/local/lib' etc.  You can specify
an installation prefix other than `/usr/local' using `--prefix',
for instance `--prefix=$HOME'.

For better control, use the options below.

Fine tuning of the installation directories:
  --bindir=DIR           user executables [EPREFIX/bin]
  --sbindir=DIR          system admin executables [EPREFIX/sbin]
  --libexecdir=DIR       program executables [EPREFIX/libexec]
  --datadir=DIR          read-only architecture-independent data [PREFIX/share]
  --sysconfdir=DIR       read-only single-machine data [PREFIX/etc]
  --sharedstatedir=DIR   modifiable architecture-independent data [PREFIX/com]
  --localstatedir=DIR    modifiable single-machine data [PREFIX/var]
  --libdir=DIR           object code libraries [EPREFIX/lib]
  --includedir=DIR       C header files [PREFIX/include]
  --oldincludedir=DIR    C header files for non-gcc [/usr/include]
  --infodir=DIR          info documentation [PREFIX/info]
  --mandir=DIR           man documentation [PREFIX/man]

Program names:
  --program-prefix=PREFIX            prepend PREFIX to installed program names
  --program-suffix=SUFFIX            append SUFFIX to installed program names
  --program-transform-name=PROGRAM   run sed PROGRAM on installed program names

X features:
  --x-includes=DIR    X include files are in DIR
  --x-libraries=DIR   X library files are in DIR

System types:
  --build=BUILD     configure for building on BUILD [guessed]
  --host=HOST       cross-compile to build programs to run on HOST [BUILD]

Optional Features:
  --disable-FEATURE       do not include FEATURE (same as --enable-FEATURE=no)
  --enable-FEATURE[=ARG]  include FEATURE [ARG=yes]
  --disable-dependency-tracking Speeds up one-time builds
  --enable-dependency-tracking  Do not reject slow dependency extractors
                          build static libraries [default=no]
                          build shared libraries [default=yes]
                          optimize for fast installation [default=yes]
  --disable-libtool-lock  avoid locking (might break parallel builds)
  --disable-largefile     omit support for large files
  --enable-maintainer-mode enable make rules and dependencies not useful
                          (and sometimes confusing) to the casual installer
                          turn on debugging [default=minimum]
  --enable-shm            support shared memory if available [default=yes]
  --enable-ansi           turn on strict ansi [default=no]
  --enable-xkb            support XKB [default=maybe]
  --disable-rebuilds      disable all source autogeneration rules
  --disable-visibility    don't use ELF visibility attributes
  --disable-shadowfb      disable shadowfb support for linux-fb
  --enable-fbmanager      enable framebuffer manager support (GtkFB)
                          use explicit dependencies in .pc files
  --disable-glibtest      do not try to compile and run a test GLIB program
  --disable-modules       disable dynamic module loading
  --enable-gtk-doc        use gtk-doc to build documentation default=no
  --enable-man            regenerate man pages from Docbook [default=no]

Optional Packages:
  --with-PACKAGE[=ARG]    use PACKAGE [ARG=yes]
  --without-PACKAGE       do not use PACKAGE (same as --with-PACKAGE=no)
  --with-gnu-ld           assume the C compiler uses GNU ld [default=no]
  --with-pic              try to use only PIC/non-PIC objects [default=use
                          include additional configurations [automatic]
                          support XInput
  --with-wintab=DIRECTORY use Wintab API with win32 backend
  --with-ie55=DIRECTORY   IE5.5 libs and headers (for Active IMM)
  --with-gdktarget=[x11/linux-fb/win32] select GDK target default=$gdktarget
  --without-libpng        disable PNG loader for gdk-pixbuf
  --without-libjpeg       disable JPEG loader for gdk-pixbuf
  --without-libtiff       disable TIFF loader for gdk-pixbuf
                          build the specified loaders into gdk-pixbuf (only
                          used if module loading disabled)
  --with-x                use the X Window System
  --with-html-dir=PATH    path to installed docs
                          path to xml catalog to use

Some influential environment variables:
  CC          C compiler command
  CFLAGS      C compiler flags
  LDFLAGS     linker flags, e.g. -L<lib dir> if you have libraries in a
              nonstandard directory <lib dir>
  CPPFLAGS    C/C++ preprocessor flags, e.g. -I<include dir> if you have
              headers in a nonstandard directory <include dir>
  CPP         C preprocessor
  CXX         C++ compiler command
  CXXFLAGS    C++ compiler flags
  CXXCPP      C++ preprocessor
  F77         Fortran 77 compiler command
  FFLAGS      Fortran 77 compiler flags
  PKG_CONFIG  path to pkg-config utility
              C compiler flags for BASE_DEPENDENCIES, overriding pkg-config
              linker flags for BASE_DEPENDENCIES, overriding pkg-config
              C compiler flags for XCURSOR, overriding pkg-config
              linker flags for XCURSOR, overriding pkg-config
              C compiler flags for XFIXES, overriding pkg-config
  XFIXES_LIBS linker flags for XFIXES, overriding pkg-config

Use these variables to override the choices made by `configure' or to help
it to find libraries and programs with nonstandard names/locations.

i tried setting LDFLAGS to /usr/local/lib, but that broke the configuration within the first 12 lines of output or so. said something about the C compiler not being able to make executables.

i also tried using --with-libtiff=/usr/local/lib but to no avail.

still at a loss.

thanks for your help
