[gdal-dev] OGR building always requires KML, GML, GEOJSON drivers

I not sure about KML and GeoJSON, but the GML driver need not be enabled
for the exportToGML method to work. Even for the other two, the code
associated with exporting the OGRGeometry to those formats seems to stand
apart from the driver code.

Also, these functions are occasionally used irrespective of the drivers.

Check if there are any problems when the KML and GeoJSON drivers are
disabled. If there are any, it's better to add your patch.
