About the GDAL internal libtiff (4.0) and system libtiff (3.X) issue, I can 
confirm that Julien's patch should be safe. GDAL 1.8.1 (to be released soon 
hopefully) will incorporate a patch similar to Julien's (the only difference is 
that in the 1.8.1's patch a warning will be emitted, whereas Julien's silents 
it completely). See http://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/ticket/4101

This however doesn't fix the core issue of linking to 2 different version of 
libtiff that can work or not depending on linking order. Not sure if we can say 
that it is "GDAL's fault" by the way. More a broader issue of duplicated 
symbols due to apps linking to different versions of the same lib.

Best regards,
