[Gdal-dev] Perl interface now in Geo:: namespace by default

I've commited changes which put the Perl wrappers by default to the 
Geo:: namespace. It is still possible to build modules with the old 
names (gdal, gdalconst, ogr, and osr), but one needs to remove the 
symbol PERL_CPAN_NAMESPACE  from GNUMakefile, rebuild the wrappers, edit 
Makefile.PL, and probably do some other things.

I also added to the swig/perl directory some things to make it possible 
to "make dist" the CPAN module. Right now it makes Geo-GDAL-0.20.tar.gz, 
but it is not the same as in CPAN since the one in CPAN is built with 
GDAL 1.3.2.

I also fixed a bug in the bindings, which made SetField(field_name, 
value) silently fail even in a case where field with field_name did not 
exist. Now it calls CPLError, which can be propagated upstream.
