The approach looks good to me. I'm a bit embarassed at having written the test without realizing the endian dependent nature of TIFFReadRGBATile's output. If you are ok to fix this that is great otherwise I could do so.
It is wise to assure that the test suite passes on both big and little endian machines before preparing any release.
FWIW, HEAD does pass as of yesterday on my old G4 Mac (32-bit bigendian).
