Not really. lwgeom starts to pull in dependencies on pgsql, so testing
without a backend becomes a non-starter.  That's the beauty of Mark's
separate liblwgeom.  Which is also, to my mind, a reason to migrate a
much of pure geometry code (area, length, lrs) into liblwgeom, where
it can be tested more directly.

liblwgeom/cunit it is
