Something like this?
[neteler at localhost grass70]$ svn diff configure.in
Index: configure.in
--- configure.in        (revision 38604)

+  LOC_CHECK_LIBS(geos,GEOSGeom_createLinearRing,GEOS,$GEOS_CFLAGS,$GEOS_LIBS,,,,)

It generates:
cat config.log

(still no solution to the original problem:
 perhaps my much liked "-Werror-implicit-function-declaration" is the problem?)
