That suggests that you need a -dev[el] package.

The unversioned symlinks are only needed when compiling, so they are
normally only included in development packages.

I'm fairly sure it's a GDAL thing. If GDAL was built with --with-geos,
-lgeos will probably appear in the output of "gdal-config --dep-libs".
