Would you be able to try this under VMWare for me? I really don't want
to start shipping files across for the official Win32 installer if they
are crashing during regression :(

It's pgsql2shp.exe which is crashing on me.

I tried using autotools under MingW but it failed :( At the moment, it
looks like you have to install cmake in order compile GEOS 3.0.0 RC1
under MingW, but I can't say I've tried this myself yet.

Kind regards,
