Hello  to everybody,
I really need your help to install the libTIFF library.
I am new user in linux so i will try to be accurate as possible.
I have visited the site
http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/svn/general/libtiff.html and
afterwards i downloaded the tiff-3.8.2.tar.gz  from :
ftp://ftp.remotesensing.org/libtiff/tiff-3.8.2.tar.gz and then through
the shell i wrote the following commnds:

tar zxf tiff-3.8.2.tar.gz
cd tiff-3.8.2
./configure --prefix=/usr &&
Unfortunately i received the following errors:

Libtiff is now configured for i686-pc-linux-gnu

Unfortunately i am not able to understand what the problem is so if
anyone knows how to solve this i would realy apriciate it.
Thanks in advance.
