I am having this exact problem with the tiff package. I was going to
submit a PR, but according to the GNATS database, this PR was "filed in
error", so was closed by agc. patch-ae also fails on tools/tiffcp.c.
Any suggestions? I'll send another PR, but I just don't understand why
this one was considered "filed in error".
