Indeed, but ldd is recursive.  gnuplot itself doesn't use libtiff,
although one of its dependencies does - specifically
libwx_gtk2u_core-2.8.so.0; see the output of "objdump
--private-headers", specifically the "NEEDED" entries.

For completeness, I've checked the i386 package providing
libwx_gtk2u_core-2.8.so.0 in squeeze, and it uses libtiff.so.4.

My suspicion is that the ldd output will be sufficient in any case, and
most likely point to a local copy of the library.  If it doesn't, then
we can narrow down where the dependency is coming from.
