Good Question.  I am not sure.  Here we compiled it to run with the GDAL 
library (www.remotesensing.org) and have been using that to read both 
GEOTIFF and regular TIFF's with ESRI world files.  I have not tried to 
use it with the straight tifflib.

My guess is that you do not have geotiff capablility. I am not sure how 
Mapserver without GDAL deals with this.  It might require an ESRI world 
file.   See if you can find a tool that will export the geotiff tags to 
an ESRI world file with the same name and a .tfw extension.  Then place 
the world file in the same directory as the Tiff imagery.  Or ask 
someone more knowlegable than me.

Any help out there?
