Hi all,

file that will show whenever a user compiles a project source against the

that Warning into an error unless said user defines the
Geometry.h  header file
> This will allow packagers to still distribute the headers and C++ libs if
they want, but users will have to be smart enough to edit the header file
to compile projects that use the GEOS C++ API.
> Votes as I understand -- Dale and Hobu will need to reaffirm (since this
is a softer stop gap compromise)
> Strk  -  +1
> Hobu -0  (please confirm Hobu to make Strk happy that I'm not putting
words into your mouth :)  )
