I've also just encountered this bug.  Having installed geotiff-bin, 
when I try to run listgeo I get the error "listgeo: error while loading 
shared libraries: libgeotiff.so: cannot open shared object file: No 
such file or directory".  If I understand correctly - and it's quite 
possible that I don't - there are two problems.  Firstly, geotiff-bin 
doesn't depend on libgeotiff1.2, so there isn't much chance of it 
finding a libgeotiff.so unless you've previously installed that 
package.  Secondly, if you manually install libgeotiff1.2 you still 
don't actually get a /usr/lib/libgeotiff.so.  I would have thought that 
making a symlink from /usr/lib/libgeotiff.so to libgeotiff.so.1 would 
be appropriate, and adding that link manually makes listgeo work.  Or 
maybe listgeo should be compiled to expect the .so.1?

Cheers,  Phil.
