[fdo-dev] GDAL version in the trunk

On Linux it does. However on my Linux laptop I never had a problem
anyway since libraries get installed in /usr which is automatically
visible, even without having a special --with- option. I simply deleted
thirdparty in order to compile against the available libraries. :-) On
x64, the stuff in thirdparty doesn't really compile anyway, but that's a
whole different discussion.

Indirectly, I think it helps.
If all FDO dependencies are supported through --with-<dependency>
option, then it will be possible to not to download Thirdparty module at
all but use existing installation of libraries.

I consider "use existing installation" as equivalent to "get GDAL from
its home server". Though, I might have misunderstood the original
