Thanks for doing this, Roger! I've been sitting on the sidelines waiting for vcpkg to mature since it looks very promising!

Just as a point of interest for any developers on Windows. Microsoft's vcpkg repository (https://github.com/Microsoft/vcpkg) might be of use for simplifying building a collection of library dependencies for your projects, including libtiff. It's similar to the BSD ports collection, but it's all based around CMake scripts. So for libtiff, it just downloads the release and runs the cmake build.
Anyone can update it, though you do have to sign a CLA. This is the PR I opened for 4.0.10: https://github.com/Microsoft/vcpkg
Just clone the repository, run the bootstrap script, then
vcpkg install tiff
or vcpkg install tiff:x64-windows
It's supposed to be cross-platform (for Linux and MacOS X at least), but it's a bit patchy for non-Windows platforms at present. Windows is always a pain, but this might make it a little easier (I replaced all my custom dependency management scripts with this).
