Yeah, so, just a kind of by-the-by: this sucks. :)  Especially for
distributions.  I'm working on a Debian package of PostGIS (actually,
it's pretty much done, just need to clean it up and submit it) and had
to hack up the Makefile a bit to get it to not do the silly include
../../Makefile.global or whatever stuff.

I realize this is more a problem w/ how the Postgresql people expect
modules to be compiled but I figured I'd point this out here too.

If anyone is interested in testing my Debian postgis packages drop me a
line and I'll see about making them available somewhere.
