Ah yes, now that I look closely at your original configure line, -- 
with-geos wasn't right.  It built because GEOS is optional, and since  
it wasn't found it was left out.  There was really nothing wrong,  
just unexpected ;)

I've never run the regression tests on my builds.  I just tried, but  
the readme didn't tell me I need a PG role with my login name (a  
convenience I never set up) or a postgis_reg database.

Just out of curiosity, have you tried my OSX binaries?  I packaged up  
1.3.1 yesterday.  The installer is setup so that it should install on  
any Postgres 8.2 in the default location (/usr/local/pgsql), or I  
also have a Postgres installer available.

I got so distracted by other things when I started doing them that I  
never got around to asking to get them listed at the postgis site, so  
it isn't easy to find them (on my site). [writing Paul Ramsey now  
about this...]
