I haven't looke at 3.5.6 beta, but 3.5.5 needed changes to configure and 
 libtiff/  Also, the default for configure was for 
interactive querying of options and needed --noninteractive to be 
specified.  Also, any optimization needed to be specified with special 
flags to make.

I generally would not recommend using a package labeled beta in this 
book, but if these discrepancies are fixed inthe beta, we probably 
should go with that.
