Compiling against 8.3devel fails:

lwgeom_geos_c.c: In function `postgis_geos_version':
lwgeom_geos_c.c:84: warning: implicit declaration of function `VARATT_SIZEP'
lwgeom_geos_c.c:84: error: invalid lvalue in assignment

I think this is the relevant commit:


I haven't followed the discussion surrounding that commit enough
to know how best to write code that must compile against 8.3 and
earlier versions.  The attached patch gets PostGIS to compile and
pass all regression tests against 8.3devel but it will break builds
against earlier versions.  In a few places I replaced the constant 4
with VARHDRSZ but somebody more familiar with the code might want to
evaluate whether VARHDRSZ is indeed what's intended.
