This will have to wait for the GEOS namespace implementation
as there is a confict due to MingW STL including <windows.h>
which causes a conflivt with 'Polygon'

Once the GEOS namespace is implemented you should be able
to build GEOS with MingW by doing something like

% CC="c++ -mno-cygwin" CXX="c++ -mno-cygwin" configure; make
