I use Gentoo and have the package tiff 3.6.1-r2 installed (using emerge). I can't find tiffgt though. Can you tell me where I can get tiffgt?
tiffgt requires opengl. I don't know about gentoo, but I know in Debian, it is available in a separate package (libtiff-opengl) whereas the rest of the command-line tools go in libtiff-tools. tiffgt was omitted from the debian tiff packages until just a few weeks ago. It was also not present in the Red Hat tiff package as of Red Hat 9 (the last time I used Red Hat). It's possible that it's simply not present in the gentoo tiff packages. Hopefully someone more familiar with gentoo could give you a better answer though.
It doesn't get installed with gentoo (not with the latest 3.7.1-r1 either). I don't think I have mesa but there are no use flags so I guess it don't make any difference.
If you are running gentoo you shouldn't be afraid of a source install. Just dld the source, untar, ./configure, make, # make install. It will install to usr/local/bin as opposed to /usr/bin where your gentoo binaries are.
