[geos-devel] geos for perl

In the 2.2.xs series you'll have to regenerate your SWIG bindings.  Also 
if I remember correctly, python.i was missing in the distribution (but 
it is in the CVS branch).

I'd recommend using CVS head though since the SWIG bindings were redone 
to use the geos c api and were integrated into the geos build system.

Last, note that Ari did some work a while back on perl bindings but that 
was against the 2.2.x series.
