Are the newer DLLs binary incompatible with the older ones?  If not,
I'd prefer not to introduce any version checking, since this increases
the probability of the user's DLL being rejected by Emacs for no good

If there are indeed incompatibilities, can you point to the
documentation that describes them?

Likewise here: do versions >= 1.5 indeed again broke binary
compatibility with earlier versions?

Where did you find these newer ports of libtiff?  Maybe we should
amend the instructions in nt/INSTALL and nt/README.W32.

I don't think I've seen this part.  Did you send it?
