Whoops, that wasn't meant to be part of the commit. I've removed that

libtiff.so is still currently a C++ library, but I've sent some patches
to tech-pkg@ to create a separate libtiffcxx.so library for use by C++
applications. It's meant to be used directly in place of libtiff.so,
i.e. instead of linking against -ltiff, you link against -ltiffcxx.
It also leaves libtiff.so as a plain C-linkage library again.
Please check the thread "tiff shouldn't require C++" on tech-pkg@.
