libtiff-devel (3.9.6-1): missing dependency on libjbig-devel

libwebp's [1] configure script [2] does a simple check for -ltiff,
this will succeed, but the build will fail due to the missing library.

$ wget
$ tar -xzf libwebp-0.2.0.tar.gz
$ cd libwebp-0.2.0
$ ./configure
$ make -j12
/bin/sh ../libtool  --tag=CC    --mode=link gcc  -g -O2     -o
cwebp.exe cwebp-cwebp.o ../src/ -ljpeg  -ltiff
libtool: link: gcc -g -O2 -o .libs/cwebp.exe cwebp-cwebp.o
../src/.libs/libwebp.a /usr/lib/libtiff.dll.a -ljbig
/usr/lib/libjpeg.dll.a -lz
cannot find -ljbig
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
Makefile:369: recipe for target `cwebp.exe' failed
make[2]: *** [cwebp.exe] Error 1

Related webp issue [3]. The configure check may be able to be made
more robust (suggestions?), but I think the issue remains:
libjbig-devel needs to be installed.
