It's not the BUILD-depends of vtk that are relevant but, rather, the
regular dependencies of gdcm's build-deps.  For example, installing
libvtk5-dev will pull in anything that libvtk5-dev depends on.

While vtk is linked with tiff (package libvtk5 depends on libtiff4),
the package libvtk5-dev does NOT depend on libtiff4-dev.  This
may be an oversight, but more likely it reflects the fact that you
can use VTK without needing TIFF so there is no need to force
all libvtk5-dev users to install the TIFF development package.

But gdcm apparently uses the TIFF-using part of VTK, so
gdcm must build-depend on libtiff4-dev.

Hope that clarifies things.
