Hi All,

Thanks for the debian packages for trusty for PostGIS.

As in my current work I am looking to use PostGIS with a custom-built
Postgresql (with some changes on top of Postgresql 9.5.0), I am required to
build PostGIS 2.2.1 from source.

As a first step, am trying to build PostGIS from source for Postgresql 9.5.0

In line, I downloaded postgis-2.2.1.tar.gz from http://postgis.net/source/
However, during './configure' am getting this error:

checking for geos_c.h... yes
checking for initGEOS in -lgeos_c... yes
checking for sfcgal-config... /usr/local/bin/sfcgal-config
configure: error: PostGIS requires SFCGAL >= 1.1.0 (found 1.0.0)

On trusty by default version 1.0.0 of SFCGAL is available. Also in my
previous PostGIS source-build attempt, build of SFCGAL 1.2.1 required CGAL
4.7 and still SFCGAL did not get installed properly. Also I noticed that in
Debian trusty PostGIS packages you uploaded, postgis_sfcgal was missing.

I don't need postgis_sfcgal specifically as such, so ran configure with
option --without-sfcgal.

However, due to it, address_standardizer has also got disabled (It was
available in trusty package you had created). Could you please show me a
way, that address_standardizer can be enabled, even if postgis_sfcgal is
not there?
