I'm trying to get PostGIS running on CentOS 5.8 (on a VPS).  I have 
Postgres 8.4 installed from rpm.  I built PostGIS 1.5 from source, 
install and make  went properly.

When I try to run postgis.sql I get the following, starting with the 
first line:

psql:/usr/share/pgsql/contrib/postgis-1.5/postgis.sql:59: ERROR: could 
not load library "/usr/lib64/pgsql/postgis-1.5.so": libgeos_c.so.1: 
cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

  and then later after aborted transaction errors:

psql:/usr/share/pgsql/contrib/postgis-1.5/postgis.sql:7782: ERROR: type 
"box2d" does not exist
psql:/usr/share/pgsql/contrib/postgis-1.5/postgis.sql:7783: ERROR: type 
"geometry" does not exist
psql:/usr/share/pgsql/contrib/postgis-1.5/postgis.sql:7791: ERROR: type 
"geometry[]" does not exist

Thanks in advance for any help!
