I have installed GDAL 1.9.0 in /usr/local/ and have placed FileGDB_API from the ArcGIS resource center at /usr/local.  Configure --with-fgdb produces a config summary that shows 'yes' for 'with fgdb support'.  However, after 'make' and 'make install', the tests for ogrinfo fail - no FileGDB format is acknowledged.  I have put the FileGDB_API directory in the GDAL_DRIVER_PATH.

That didn't work for me unfortunately.  Quite a puzzle ... the feedback during the compile process shows that fgdb is being supported and there are no warnings or errors. However, fgdb just isn't making it to the list at 'ogrinfo --formats', nor will it open the test set 'test_fgdb.gdb'
