The CAPI has a new function GEOSArea().
Libtool manual says that this should trigger
an INTERFACE_CURRENT increment, so from


we should go to 

AGE=1 // support all previous interfaces

I know this will bring to libgeos_c.so.1.1.0
under GNU/Linux, but IIRC on BSD systems this
resulted in 2.0.0 instead, if not worst.

Is there any BSD user willing to test this ?
Basically we need to check:

	1) what would the resulting library
	   SONAME be in BSD

	2) if 2.0.0 wheter ABI compatibility
	   is really broke or not (could
	   be libtool is right)

Volunteers ?
