Comment (by Bas Couwenberg):

 The symlink is present:
 $ dpkg-deb -c ../libgeos++-dev_3.7.0~alpha-1~exp1_amd64.deb | grep usr/lib
 | grep libgeos
 -rw-r--r-- root/root   5366122 2018-06-14 09:17 ./usr/lib/x86_64-linux-
 lrwxrwxrwx root/root         0 2018-06-14 09:17 ./usr/lib/x86_64-linux-
 gnu/libgeos.so -> libgeos-3.7.0.so

 So the `geos-config` patch could be dropped, although I also prefer
 explicitly including the versioned library name as that matches the
 SONAME. Note that Francesco Paolo Lovergine originally developed that
 patch which also included adding the {{clibs}} option, see:
