Hi Frank,

I had to disable mask_5 to mask_10 and ecw_6, which threw another Exception.

Now the result looks like:
 ------------ Failures ------------
Script: ogr/ogr_s57.py
  TEST: ogr_s57_2 ... fail
    Expected 2 layer type in layer COALNE, but got 0.
Script: gcore/tiff_write.py
  TEST: tiff_write_55 ... fail
    failed to preserve Equirectangular projection as expected, old libgeotiff?
Script: gdrivers/pds.py
  TEST: pds_4 ... fail
    Checksum for band 1 in "pds_3177.lbl" is 3293, but expected 4028.
Script: gdrivers/gxf.py
  TEST: gxf_1 ... fail
    Checksum for band 1 in "small.gxf" is 90, but expected 88.
Script: gdrivers/ecw.py
  TEST: ecw_10 ... fail (blowup)

Test Script: utilities/test_ogrtindex.py
Succeeded: 1570
Failed:    5 (1 blew exceptions)
Skipped:   240
Expected fail:1
As GDAL_DOWNLOAD_TEST_DATA environment variable is not defined, 67 tests relying on data to downloaded from the Web have been skipped

Talking about libtiff4 in elgis is concerned, there is really no hurry.
