It's amazing how much you can learn in a couple of days when helpful
people keep sending you email :-)

Note that I built my test copy apparently in quite an unorthodox way. I
also had a note out to the port maintainer, Arjan van Leeuwen, who set me
straight on a few things :-)

Instead of the
sudo ./configure ... --prefix=/tmp/IM6
that I had tried the first time around, where configure options came from
the real build script, I wiped that and tried
sudo make PREFIX=/tmp/IM6
sudo make install
and now have a lovely copy of IM in /tmp/IM6 for playing. It does,
indeed, know about JPG, PNG, FPX, and the whole slew of other types. It
apparently does not know about the APP1 profile type (like I really know
what profiles do yet anyway; all I know is that I have to strip them with
in order for my IE6 viewers to see the images) and, to my greater worry,
apparently does not make semitransparent watermarks just like 5.5.6
didn't. Maybe the problem isn't with IM but with, say, my jpeg library;
I'm going to dig into that next.
% Did you install jpeg-6b_3 and png-1.2.5_5from the ports? The configure

I think that I have jpeg-6b_2 in my list, but can't at the moment put my
finger on where I saw that. IM no longer complains, though, so I'm not

Hmmm... I'll definitely check that out. This is a production web server
and I'm hesitant to upgrade thigns willy-nilly, but if I do have to that
sounds like an excellent way to go.
