[R-SIG-Mac] any advice on libtiff? (and rtiff)

Hi, I know rtiff does not compile 'cause it can't find libtiff (per cran 
check logs).

I'm just wondering if anyone has successfully installed libtiff, either 
from source or via MacPorts?  And if so,  is it then possible to build 
rtiff from the source and have everything work?

So far I've (naively) tried building libtiff3.9.2 from sources, but even 
though "make" seems to happily complete its job,  nothing seems to be 
installed anywhere useful.

Or should I just bite the bullet and install the Gtk tiff tools and that 
big graphics package (something-BE, I forget the name just now)?
