Ehmm.. I don't know actually :)
I use JTS from CVS, I'm not sure they ever released a libjts 
equipped package. BTW, libjts still lacks a version so
it will actually require a fix to this before it's ready for
the public.

Also, note that polygonize (and thus BuildArea() and OGC Bd*PolyFromText())
are not available with JTS yet.

If you feel brave get the CVS version, cd to libjts and ./configure.
The configure script should tell you if build is possible.

Sure, I did !
And often use it to double-check GEOS-related bug reports.
