gcc -o conftest -g -Wall -L${LDFLAGS} -R${LDFLAGS} conftest.c ${USERLIB}/libtiff.a

fails on a bunch of undefined symbols, as

"inflate                             /export/home/sfd0/lib/tiff/lib/libtiff.a(tif_pixarlog.o)"


As Bob suggests, it looks like ImageMagick is wanting to link against a shared library version of libtiff that knows about what it depends on. In this case if you link against libtiff.a, you will also need to link against zlib, used for the deflate compression support. Adding -lz may be sufficient to address this.
