When I ran it yesterday, it fixed problem #1, but then I hit the above
problem a little later in the same session. Once you configure ldconfig's
conf files and run it once doesn't that take care it forever; including
after a system reboot as well?
At any rate, I re-ran ./configure with the
--with-geos-libdir=/usr/local/lib switch, so I hope that's the end of it.
There's so much to learn here I could do without the weird errors... ;-)
