Sean / Jan,

Or even more likely, you have two version of the GDAL shared library
around and the wrong one is being picked up.  CPLFreeConfig() is relatively
recent in GDAL.  It was introduced very late in 2003.   The mapgdal.c module
only compiles in the call to CPLFreeConfig() if the GDAL version seems
sufficiently recent but if you build against recent include files but
link or run against an older shared library then that entry point will not
be available.
