We now depend on something that is not even in the latest GEOS and we also
build on platforms/distributions that would be behind even if the latest GEOS
supported this.  So the geosextra stuff and the geos C++ dependency will have
to stay for those.  In OSGeo4W I'll just update the patch in the GEOS package -
as we don't ship the C++ API there anyway - to avoid trouble with the compiler
abi zoo on windows.
