The unofficial packages for the image viewer "XV" are getting old. When
I try to install them it fails because XV requires libtiff3g which

installing XV and libtiff3g so that only XV sees libtiff3g? Some sort of
renaming or encapsulation?

Get the source for xv, and compile. It's not hard.

Or, just backport/sideport/rebuild, whatever:


or use apt-build.
