tiff and mng support checks should be removed

Issue #290 resolved
Anonymous created an issue

The checks for mng and tiff in the configure script should be removed: - You need that support in the DevIL version available at runtime, not at build time - For the check to success, in most distributions a -devel/-dev package of tiff and mng need to be installed. The user probably only has the real libraries installed, not the development files. So the checks gives false negatives.
