The Release-0_8_0 branch compiles for me as is. I am not using geos and 
gdal frameworks however. My geos and gdal are installed into 
/usr/local/geos-3.0.0rc4 and /usr/local/gdal-1.4.1-geos3. geos 2.2.3 and 
gdal 1.4.1 are also installed in /usr/local since I build with both 
versions of geos.

These errors may be caused by a different version of Python or SWIG (I 
have 2.3 and 1.3.31).

Try copying msexport_wrap.cxx from trunk to Release-0_8_0. The only 
differences between the files appear to address the errors above.
