Looking at the 3.9.5 release notes here
(http://www.remotesensing.org/libtiff/v3.9.5.html) it looks like there
were some significant changes outside of just the security fix. Given
where we are in the development cycle, we should not upgrade wholesale
from 3.9.4 to 3.9.5. Please incorporate the specific security patch
to fix BMC#15056 instead of upgrading.
