Hi David, MythVideo gallery view isn't affected. Libtiff is mainly for

Nothing special. The -plugins option wasn't working last time I tried  
so I manually edit the packager script to take out gallery. Probably  
that's not necessary and it's enough to remove libtiff from the deps.

I guess if the build tools don't need anything they create then it's  
OK. I'm wary of building with one library setup and running with  
another but if it runs who can argue?
