Yah it's a little rushed because we have a function in PostGIS 2.4.0 that
relies on GEOS 3.7 -- this one


and though you can compile PostGIS 2.4.0 with 3.4 or higher, I did have to
put in a warning something to the effect:

"If you are compiling with GEOS < 3.7you are not getting the full PostGIS

It seems almost silly to say that if GEOS 3.7.0 is not out yet.

Okay I'll release an RC before final.  Not sure how much I can fuss with
internal packaging since I'm planning to just use the make dist which I
think will end up putting it out as -RC.
