I see a further problem under FreeBSD in that the previous libtiff.so (obtained from FreeBSD's "ports") was libtiff.so.4, but the new one is libtiff.so.3. Lowering the .so version is sure to cause severe problems for distributions.
That was a decition of the port maintainer. Libtiff never changed the main version from 3 to 4.
