[Gdal-dev] Package review submitted for Fedora & NetCDF include path

OK, I got tried of waiting for someone else to do it.  I re-built SRPMS 
for GDAL and OGDI and posted them here: http://www.gnupooh.org/RPM

Then I requested package review in Red Hat's Bugzilla to have them added 
to Fedora.  

I just slightly modified SPEC files I got from one of the binary RPM 
sites listed on the GDAL page so I hope no-one will feel I'm stealing 
credit for them.  I just wanted to get it done.

Previously, Fedora didn't accept GDAL because there was a shared object 
conflict with GRASS.  Hopefully we can work past that.

Also, I couldn't build with "netcdf" because Fedora puts the CDF include 
files in "/usr/include/netcdf-3" and GDAL doesn't look there.  I could 
have put in a little hack patch to add "-I/usr/include/netcdf-3" to the 
Makefile, but I was hoping it could somehow be fixed upstream.   Can you 
have autoconf check for NETCDF in that location and have the Makefile 
modified to work with that include path?
