The only problem found in the past with that option was:


and it was detected at linking time. It seems OTB is misusing the original TIFF API or exploting
some inner problems of the same library. Note that
the geotiff internal gdal library has been used since 1.6.0 in debian, the old one used the same
library you are now linking with the default configuration. So the objection seems pointless.
