I'm trying to build imagemagick using open embedded.  I have the environment working fine, I followed all the instructions on gumstix.net under getting started and was able to build the gumstix-basic-image without any problems.  When I went to build imagemagick the build failed with an error while building libtiff:
NOTE: Running task 231 of 274 (ID: 101, /home/peter/gumstix/gumstix-oe/org.openembedded.snapshot/packages/libtiff/tiff_3.7.2.bb, do_qa_configure)

Attempting to build just libtiff results in the same error.  I gather that it is a problem with looking at host versions of libraries, I initially thought that there must be a problem with the way my paths are set.  I asked on IRC and a user reported the same problem when trying to build the package, so I'm wondering if there is something wrong with the recipe, configure script or something.  Does anyone have any ideas on what is wrong and what I can do to fix it?
