If you're saying it is not elegant, obviously, it isn't, but that works. 
Or is your concern something else ? All that pertains to the 

Basically the idea would be that MapServer set some defines that 
override the default FlatGeobuf & flatbuffers namespaces

An example of that in another project is in 
https://github.com/SAP/odbc-cpp-wrapper/pull/29/files and 
: here the potential conflict was between the embedded copy of the 
odbc-cpp-wrapper library in QGIS, and the external odbc-cpp-wrapper 
library that the GDAL SAP Hana driver can link to.

The only other way of solving that would be for GDAL and MapServer to 
link to an external & identical version of FlatGeobuf & flatbuffers 
libraries, but that would require them to be packaged etc, which 
wouldn't be very practical.


My software is free, but my time generally not.
