patch for header bug in tiff-3.6.0

tiff-3.6.0 contains a bug in the tiffio.h header: it incorrectly 
uses the macro ORIENTATION_BOTTOMLEFT when it should use 

This error doesn't get caught in the tiff build because it only 
crops up when compiling with a C++ compiler.  It gets tripped 
when certain C++ apps (like kdelibs) try to build against 
libtiff.  In the case of kdelibs, it just means that a configure 
check will fail, and tiff support won't get built into kdelibs.

Patch attached.
