I'm very interesting in your project idea, I'will start with chilean 
part of the postgis geocoder project

As an attecment, i send you a geocoder written in C, that makes use of 
Shapelib in order to get X,Y from a Shapefile.

This geocoder gets the geometry arcs from the shapefile (included as an 
example) and interpolate the number of the street address, contained in 
the selected spatial record.

it may be a begining ???  but the streets geometry building are 
different in aech country. if you want, i can give you more details 
about chilean streets data structures soon...

My regards
