[ms4w-users] mr sid

Well, these images did work with my older ms4w....when I had to setup the
sdk under the gdalplugins and register this location.  I did not see such
instructions with the latest ms4w....but I have done this anyways, with no
change in results.  I am running Chameleon, and getting a php error when
turning on these sids.

Is this setup still required, or is the sid support built-in at a deeper
level now?

I am reasonably sure that the recent MrSID SDK is supposed to support all
the older .sid formats.  Lizardtech is quite careful about this sort of
So perhaps there is another issue?
