This will also (silently) remove tiff from pkgs that use it optionally (due
to autoconfig magic). But it is easy to know which pkgs use it, if you are
willing to do a complete bulk build:

Add __warn_references(TIFFOpen, "this program uses the tiff library")
to the library source file implementing TIFFOpen. (And maybe a few more of
the key routines, TIFFClose, TIFFFdOpen, you probably get the idea)

Then safe a log from the buld build and grep for the linker output.
