Adam already gave me the --with-tiff-library=/usr/GNUstep... tip.

I just tried installing the libtiff-devel...rpm and it works great. I guess I have to up my level of suspicion/paranoia and learn to look for the xxx-devel-xxx.rpm packages whenever I hit a problem. I guess I haven't been bitten enought times by the lack of installed devel*rpm packages to think of them.

Neither /usr/src/GNUstep/dgs/tiff/libtiff/, nor
/usr/GNUstep/System/Libraries/ix86/linux-gnu are standard path where the
libraries are being looked for. So you need to specify manually the
path by using the option ./configure

You also need to check for the header (tiff.h) and specify its path
with --with-tiff-library=...

LD_LIBRARY_PATH is used at runtime for shared libraries and will not
satisfy the header requirement.

Good, the best solution is to install libtiff-devel-3.5.5-2mdk.rpm,
probably libjpeg-devel-6b-15mdk too, and maybe some other. All decent
Linux distributions do have tiff development libraries ready for usage.
(many other *-devel* packages may be forth looking at when ./configure
is failing)

Hope this helps,
