It's related to json version. Which version are you building with?

I suspect you are running a newer json.  This should be fixed in 2.1.4 (2.1

If you are building from source anyway, you might want to use our 2.1.4dev
or cut in the fix from


Hope that helps,

I just received this after 'make' in version 2.1.3:

libtool: compile: gcc -g -O2 -DDLL_EXPORT -DPIC -Wall -Wmissing-prototypes
-I/usr/local/include -c lwin_geojson.c -DDLL_EXPORT -DPIC -o
lwin_geojson.c:20:23: fatal error: json/json.h: No such file or directory
#include <json/json.h> ^ compilation terminated.

I read that this is a problem related to Geos 3.4.2. My configuration is:
