My stop-gap measure is this patch to avoid the insanity loop:

Index: graphics/tiff/Makefile
RCS file: /cvsroot/pkgsrc/graphics/tiff/Makefile,v
retrieving revision 1.146
diff -u -r1.146 Makefile
--- graphics/tiff/Makefile	4 Nov 2019 01:11:38 -0000	1.146
+++ graphics/tiff/Makefile	17 Aug 2020 16:59:17 -0000

 CONFIGURE_ARGS+=	--enable-cxx
 CONFIGURE_ARGS+=	--with-docdir=${PREFIX}/share/doc/tiff
 CONFIGURE_ARGS+=	--without-x # just in case detects gl to build tiffgt
+CONFIGURE_ARGS+=	--disable-webp # avoid questionable circular dep

I guess another way would be to add builtin detection to webp, explicit
dependency here … and some way to handle the wicked ciruclar dependency
that arises. I for my part don't see why I would want webp support in
TIFF and TIFF support in webp. People should just stop this madness.

Alrighty then,
