[postgis-users] Build Postgis - no Numpy in GDAL python bindings

I think I solved it.
The problem was that Postgis ./configure did not automatically locate
the new gdal version.
By setting ./configure --with-gdalconfig=/usr/local/bin/gdal-config it
found the GDAL 1.9.1 version.

Now i have a new problem. When running almost any query i get the error:
ERROR:  could not load library
/usr/lib/postgresql/9.1/lib/rtpostgis-2.0.so: undefined symbol:

********** Error **********

ERROR: could not load library
/usr/lib/postgresql/9.1/lib/rtpostgis-2.0.so: undefined symbol:
SQL state: 58P01

Any idea?

Thank for all help,
