$ ./configure --with-tifflib=/opt
configure: error: cannot run /bin/sh ./config.sub

(I do have the tiff package installed via MacPorts.)

(Doc bug: README.OSX refers to /sw, which is the default install prefix for Fink, not the /opt prefix used by the port system.)

Mac OS X 10.4.9
libtiff 3.8.2

    The configure script did not work under Linux (current, Ubuntu Hardy on i386 compatible hardware). The problem were MS DOS CR/LF endings of the scripts.

    Bugfix: run
    $ recode ibmpc..lat1 <file>

    on the files in question.

    Especially files for UNIX (including Mac) platforms should not contain MS platform specific formats.
