Sure. There are more - possibly useful - mode options, though. The list of options given in TIFFOpen(3TIFF) like l,b to change the byte order, m to disable memory mapped files, perhaps h to skip some parsing overhead (untested).

Ahhh, I see. This makes more sense then. Regardless, since there is a manual page for ppm2tiff (man/bmp2tiff.1 in the source tree) there would need to be an associated manual page update which at least refers to the TIFFOpen(3TIFF) manual page for the meaning of the mode options. The mode options are libtiff version dependent. Libtiff 4 (to be released soon) offers more mode options.

Are you willing and able to send a patch for the manual page as well?
