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++.
Hm, that's possible and I have to check it.
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.
I did compile it with CC=cc where 'cc' is the sun workshop compiler. I'll check libjpeg and zlib, but I should have compiled them with CC=cc, too.
