A key problem with distributing an application that makes private IFDs is a standard install of libtiff doesn't install tif_dir.h

I’ve been using the tif_dir.h routines: TIFFCreateCustomDirectory(), TIFFWriteCustomDirectory(); but a little concerned that, because I’m they need private header includes, this might not be the proper way to do things.
My current implementation does:
- Create TIFF file

- Write the image data
- Create the custom IFD
- Write the IFD index into the normal tag area
- Close the file

-The first one is just bonkers, as neither writing data nor I’m modifying compression tags at the time
The second one relates to the TIFFTAG_SUBIFD tag write (step5): Which again is a little strange since this tag is defined by the library (so is not unknown).
Any help, suggestions or advice greatly appreciated!!
