A proper fix would be using symbol versioning on the gdal side.
I still did not do that because I know for sure that quite a few
programs out there use system libraries and sym versions would
render them not binary compatible. In the last year I hoped to
see inner and distributed libtiff finally aligned, but that appeared
a nice dream only. Still the emdedding of many libraries in gdal
is a problem so I think versioning is unavoidable.

We should minimize the use of embedding libraries for good reasons.
This is mandatory for the pkg.
