Ok, forget about the '!' thing, what postgis does is call
geos-config with these:

        GEOS_DIR=`$GEOSCONFIG --prefix`
        GEOS_LDFLAGS=`$GEOSCONFIG --ldflags`
        GEOS_MAJOR=`$GEOSCONFIG --version | cut -d. -f1`

It's possible that I forgot support for older geos and
the above are not actually working. So, can you try invoking
/usr/bin/geos-config with the above flags in turn and see
which fails ? Which version of GEOS do you have ?

(note that geos-config is a shell script, you can also inspect
 with any pager or texteditor)
