Advice for Package Authors

If you’re authoring a package which is to depend on ijtiff and you’re using AppVeyor, be sure to force AppVeyor to use 64-bit architecture. This avoids some peculiarities of 32-bit AppVeyor which cause ijtiff installations to fail. You can see how to do this in the appveyor.yml file in this repository.
