I'm looking for ( or is it (easy) possible with libtiff to write a text into a Tiff-file e.g write at pos 100,100 "Hit here"?
I've looked at ImageMagik and with their 'convert' utility it's possible but I hoped to find a small program which only can write into Tiff's.
So you need a font rasterizer. This is a big project. You can use Ghostscript directly with a small PS program that converts ASCII text to PS.
It is also possible to write platform-specific programs using build-in font rasterizer. For instance, Windows GDI.
