It does effect existing binary packages. It built fine for the originator
before. It was installed. But, libtiff't tiffinfo was broken and
windowmaker was broken (tiff icons not working).

The first patch was from the originator of the PR. (I fixed it to have
tabs though.) It worked for him.

So it does effect the existing packages of tiff for amd64 (as tested by
the PR submitter). Should I ask on the amd64 list for feedback too?

I thought the revision should be increased since how does a new install of
windowmaker (or anything else using tiff) know to use the working version
of tiff?

Okay, I'll do that now.
