Bug#615476: general: many binaries are linked with non-existent libtiff.so.3 library

Thank you for detailed explanation.

Please note that most software that is not included in Debian are distributed
in source tarballs. Most of this software installs to /usr/local by default now.
(You type configure && make && make install - and program installed)

So, default way is dangerous way in Debian. Non-dangerous ways are:
- not traditional;
- consumes much more time;
- more complicated.

It is a good reason to think about Debian's (or GNU/Linux) usability and
ways to increase it.

It all was about installing software system-wide by administrator.

By the way: does Debian have any simple and comfortable methods of installing software
by non-privileged user only for him/herself?

WBR, Sergey
