I just pushed a package named libtiff-so4 [1] that builds from source an
older version of libtiff (3.9.7) and links to libtiff.so.4, since some
program/packages depends on it (like Scilab's SIVP), as can be seem here

A better name to this package would be libtiff4. But there is already a
package named libtiff4 [2] that download the package from Ubuntu. I think
this package should be renamed to libtiff4-ubuntu and so my package can be
named libtiff4.
