prevents libgeos-dev installation, and that prevents libpostgis1-pg74
re-build, due to recent postgresql8 move. BTW, I see no reasons to
use the postgresl-server-dev-7.4 instead of libpq-dev and linking
with the new client which is back-compatible AFAIK.
As general advice this great moving days (C++ ABI, PostgreSQL, X.org)
I strongly suggest to add testing repo to the sid one in order to have
something still working :-)
Finally, Alex are you available in next days to update libpostgis? Else
I could NMU.
