BTW, if you have some comfort level with autotools, please consider
updating asc to use the latest version of libtool; I don't see anything
in asc that needs libtiff directly, so using a newer libtool (1.5.2-2 or
newer) will ensure you don't have to worry about transitions of image
libraries in the future.

For information on how to update the version of libtool used in your
package, please see
