I don't think there is a currently released build of GDAL/OGR with the
updated TIGER support.  The most recent binary builds are part of the
OpenEV_FW releases, but that is from sometime in December before Mark
completed the TIGER work.

I have stopped preparing standalone GDAL (or OGR) binary releases since it
is quite a bit of work, and it is included in the OpenEV_FW releases.
I *should* prepare a new OpenEV_FW release sometime soon though.  Whether
I will is somewhat less certain.

I should also likely remove the references to the ancient 1.1.5 based binary
builds.  They jus cause problems.  In fact, this much I will go ahead and

How do people feel about GDAL only being available (as a pre-built binary)
as part of the OpenEV_FW releases?
