I do remember having some trouble with this.  Nothing that prevented
installation, but I sometimes had to do some apt gymnastics to satisfy
all the dependencies and conflicts while keeping all the other
packages installed.

I'm in favor or making libtiff non-essential (i.e. just emit a warning
if it's missing, rather than stopping the installation).
