The --with-gdal switch allows the path to the gdal-config script to be
passed as an argument, in case it isn't in the path, or in case you
want to use a version other than the one which comes first in the
path. You can't use --without-gdal or --with-gdal=no; GDAL is

However, GRASS doesn't require that GDAL is built with GRASS support,
or the GDAL-GRASS plugin.
