Just as a point of interest for any developers on Windows.  Microsoft's 
vcpkg repository (https://github.com/Microsoft/vcpkg) might be of use 
for simplifying building a collection of library dependencies for your 
projects, including libtiff.  It's similar to the BSD ports collection, 
but it's all based around CMake scripts.  So for libtiff, it just 
downloads the release and runs the cmake build.

Anyone can update it, though you do have to sign a CLA.  This is the PR 
I opened for 4.0.10: https://github.com/Microsoft/vcpkg

Just clone the repository, run the bootstrap script, then
    vcpkg install tiff
or vcpkg install tiff:x64-windows

It's supposed to be cross-platform (for Linux and MacOS X at least), but 
it's a bit patchy for non-Windows platforms at present.  Windows is 
always a pain, but this might make it a little easier (I replaced all my 
custom dependency management scripts with this).

Roger
