I knew you would say that. :)

Anyway, I made some more progress on this. libgs-8.dll (Ghostscript
8.47) that I am using is built with libtiff 4.0.1. This was the main
culprit. When I use tiff 4.0.1, Gimp will no longer open tiff files
complaining that it was unable to read the header. This is true (for
me) on both Windows 32 and 64 bit. So, I rebuilt tiff 3.9.4, which
created libtiff-3.dll and Gimp can open tiff files now. However, it
breaks Ghostscript and so I reverted your changes and went back to
loading an external program to load PS files.

I wonder why tiff 4.0.1 is failing on my builds. Has anyone tested
tiff 4.0.1 on a Linux machine to confirm this?

Thanks for all your help Mukund. It really helped me with this problem.
