  Frank put me back on the tracks by checking the shared library
dependencies. gdal was built with glibc-2.2 and I have glibc-2.1.3
installed. Duh! So, I grabbed the 1.1.5b1 tarball and built it locally. Now
it runs.

  I do, however, have a projection mis-match between the SDTS DEM file and
my project file. I'm not sure how to handle this now, but I'll be playing
with it this afternoon and see what I can learn.
