Thank you for problem reporting.
Patch will be used for update configure.in in the folloving version of Open CASCADE Technology

Thanks Igor, here is a slightly modified version of this patch, it should be more consistent with the Windows version.

I am getting errors when applying the patch. The latest one patches without errors but reconfiguring brings up errors. The original one rejects the Makefile.am patching. Is there any specific requirement. I issued the command patch < enable-freeimage.patch in the ros directory. Am I doing something wrong?

To apply this patch from the ros directory, you should run
patch -p2 < enable-freeimage.patch
I do not understand how this patch could break anything, did you try to reconfigure pristine sources to see if you have the same problems?
What is the error message?

Hi Igor,

Are you kidding? Do you mean we'll have to wait for 3 years to be able to compile OCC with FreeImage support whereas it is presenterd as a major feature enhancement of 6.5 over 6.3? Your reply is just incredible.

Best Regards,
