I had a few problems and issues with the changes:

Why is this needed?

  # HDF4 Support.

It seems that this would be used in gdal/frmts/hdf4/GNUmakefile where
the $(GDAL_INCLUDES) already includes -I$(GDAL_ROOT)/ogr.

I also don't really understand what the HDFEOSVersion.h changes were
supposed to do. I had trouble with auto-applying them so I tried to do
it by hand, but looking at it more closely it seems a comparable patch
may already have been applied.

I think I have applied the various other changes correctly (some by hand)
but you might want to check.
