Just some minor commentary follows.
(1) first about "disable-tiff" after next quote.
(2) second below that about "usefullness"

(1) Explanation why this is not a bug:
The "disable" parameter is used solely to disable Cinelerra's thirdparty
library build where this library exists in Cinelerra's thirdparty/src
directory (in this case was 4.3.0) when building "single-user" mode.  This
gives the user control to use the system version library instead (which in
your case is 4.4.0) and which was used and led to the errors probably still
because of "lerc".  Although this allows the user to use possibly a more
updated system library version, it also just leads to errors when patches
necessary for Cinelerra are then missed if needed.  Not sure what happens
when there is no system tiff library version because I did not want to
deinstall it because of all the other software I have installed that needs

thanks for letting us know our build system still not realworld proof .....

(2) YES!  The feedback you provide is very useful to us!  If you just build
from GIT every few months, it helps to find exactly this kind of problem
that we miss.
