 According to the manual, v.distance should, in a long-lat LOCATION, return
 geodesic distances in meters on a sphere, rather than in degrees. This
 works in the cases of point to point, and point to line.

 However in the case of point to boundary the module returns distances in
 degrees, and not geodesic distance.
