What would the OpenMP support do?  Few operations in libtiff are CPU 
bound.  Only compressed formats consume noticeable CPU.

It is useful for OpenMP (or any other sort of threading) to be used by 
an application using libtiff to perform parallel operations.  For 
example, reading or writing several strips/tiles at once.

Currently there is no locking in libtiff and no support for 
thread-specific data (TSD).  There are just a few static/global 
variables.  Features like strip-chopping likely cause serious issues 
for threading since they require storing intermediate state.

If support for any necessary locking or TSD is added, then it should 
be added in a generic way so that the locks and TSD APIs are provided 
by the invoking environment and don't need to be baked into libtiff.
