Hi all,

I'm trying to install GDAL v3.1.0 with Proj v6.2.1 on CentOS 7.7. I am continually receiving the following error during the make step:

../gdal.h:44:26: fatal error: gdal_version.h: No such file or directory
#include "gdal_version.h"

I have tried including the headers from the OS installed version of GDAL (v1.11.4) to no avail. Here is my configure line:

./configure --prefix=$PREFIX --with-proj=$PROJDIR --includedir=/usr/include/gdal --with-threads --with-libtiff=internal --with-geotiff=internal --with-jpeg=internal --with-gif=internal --with-png=internal --with-libz=internal

Any ideas?
