It is not libtiff related problem. What do you need is a typesetting
engine and you can choose from the simplest ones (enscript, a2ps) or
advanced systems (groff, lout, TeX). As soon as you get typesetted
layout in PostScript format you can rasterize it with Ghostscript. GS
has its own TIFF writer, but if you need more advanced TIFF features
like Group 4 compression or custom tag set you can use libtiff as the
second pass on GS output.
