That solution is not very friendly, and more aimed at finding a solution
in the PostGIS build scripts themselves than at solving your problem.

Easier solution would be to keep a single GEOS around.
You might have to fight your package manager, but that's the price to
pay for freedom (don't let you package manager rule your machine!).
