[CentOS] Which libtiff 3.8.2 do I grab?

Oh, for spandsp see:




    * The FAX image handling in libtiff 3.6.1 is broken, so this 
version of libtiff will not function correctly with spandsp (or 
HylaFAX, or any other FAX software, I guess).
    * It seems possible for the libtiff library to fall over when 
handling some bad TIFF files. If spandsp is being used with Asterisk, 
this might bring the entire PBX down. So far only one person has 
reported this. Recent security update patches for libtiff 3.5.7, 
3.6.0, and 3.6.1 hopefully correct this problem.
