Hi Michael,

It looks as though you're compiling PostGIS with reprojection support
without having installed the PROJ.4 library first. If you need
reprojection support, then you can download and install PROJ.4 from
www.remotesensing.org/proj. Otherwise open the file "Makefile" in the
postgis-0.8.2 directory and change the line USE_PROJ=1 to USE_PROJ=0
which will disable reprojection support in your build. Once this is
complete, run "make" again and you should find that the build will
