That's okay right now.

> See #663490 for information

That bug seems slightly confused.  It says "it is not important it is
critical since tiff5 entered testing and tiff4 was removed", but
libtiff4 is still in testing; it's just provided by the "tiff3" source
package now.

Regards,

Adam

Point taken. However I cannot make any sense of the python documentation:
http://docs.python.org/library/ctypes.html#finding-shared-libraries

In my case:

$ python
>>> import ctypes.util
>>> lib = ctypes.util.find_library('tiff')
>>> print lib
libtiff.so.5

where:

$ ls -al /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libtiff.so.*  *
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     16 Feb 20 14:59
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libtiff.so -> libtiff.so.4.3.6
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     16 Feb 20 14:59
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libtiff.so.4 -> libtiff.so.4.3.6
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 412208 Feb 20 14:59
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libtiff.so.4.3.6
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     16 Feb 20 14:48
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libtiff.so.5 -> libtiff.so.5.0.6
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 462488 Feb 20 14:48
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libtiff.so.5.0.6

I'll need to find some python-guru for that to help me out.

pylibtiff's code is full of ugly.  You're not supposed to use
find_library() and you're not supposed to go read a header file.  That
thing needs a rewrite IMO.
