[osgeo4w-dev] Next Package Assignment... PAGC

Hey Folks,

Looking for some insight on my next package building excercise.

The public Address Geocoder is a set of tools based on a library that
will take TIGER road files in the US and the Stats Can road network
Files (RNF) in Canada.

The first hitch I am running into is the binary installer.

Essentialy I am installing each component into seprate packages and then
will build inter dependencies.  This part is fine.

The challenge is that for the web base dapplication, a Web Processing
Service (WPS) there are two choices. Either fast Cgi or regular CGI.

I have not even looked yet if CGI is part of the package offerings, but
there seems to be a conflict if BOTH of these packages are installed.

How do we build conflict into a dependency in so far as if one is
installed then the other one can't be?

the other packages and the library itself I think is safe against any of
the two servers.

Any thoughts?

more questions to follow soon I am sure.
