Libtiff is written in C, not C++. Make sure that you compile it using a C compiler.
Hm, I am using a C compiler. What else could be the problem?
The error messages you provided were clearly due to C++ compilation being used somewhere. If C++ was not used for libtiff itself, then perhaps libjpeg or zlib were somehow compiled using C++.
If there is some doubt about which "C" compiler is used, configure like
where 'cc' is the name of your C compiler, so that configure uses the C compiler you want it to.
