make sure GDAL is installed correctly and /usr/local/lib (or where gdal
libs are installed) is listed in /etc/ld.so.conf. Run /sbin/ldconfig
after editing /etc/ld.so.conf.

or maybe you need to make a symlink to "libgdal.so.1" if it is named
like libgdal1.3.1.so.1?
ln -s /usr/lib/libgdal1.3.1.so.1 /usr/lib/libgdal.so.1
