A rewrite to use GNU > autoconf would be a good thing. I strongly disagree. One of the nice things about libtiff is that it isn't cluttered up with all sorts of autoconf garbage, so it's actually straightforward to compile on platforms that autoconf doesn't support. (Like, say, MacOS with CodeWarrior.) autoconf only works well if you assume all the world is Unix.
