Yes you are right. Using internal libtiff has historical reasons and I forgot to
change it.

This is fixed with the new gdal package (See comment #3).

As far as I can see the dependencies are sufficient. gdal-devel is sufficient to
 build other packages against gdal. I tried with mapserver after removing all
other devel-packages on my system.

Why? Mostly static libs are not needed but if someone really needs the static
lib it is nice to have it available.

Ack. I can easily remove it. But I think it doesn't hurt to have it available.
It is still included in the current package.
