I concur with Dave.  The best place to get the latest libtiff4 with
bigtiff support is CVS.  Please note that the Aperio code is a distinct
fork of libtiff and not supported or encouraged for use by the core
libtiff maintainers (ie. me).  It is unfortunate that it places well on
a BigTIFF google search as it has lead several folks astray, including
at least one sizable commercial organization who helped fund the
official libtiff BigTIFF port!

Best regards,
