Hi folks,

Would there be any interest in having support for building libtiff with CMake? This would allow for easier building on Windows and other platforms since it can generate build files for a whole host of different build tools and IDEs. For example, on Windows it generates project files for specific visual studio versions. On Unix it generates standard Makefiles. It also allows seamless integration of libtiff into libtiff-using projects (embedded directly or downloaded and build as a "superbuild"), and is quite a bit simpler to manage and use than the autotools (I switched after 15 years of autotools use).

I'm happy to do the work and submit this for inclusion. I just wanted to check if this was something which was of interest for others as well, and which wasn't totally objectionable to the maintainers.

Kind regards,

Roger
