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
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?
