$ apt-file search /usr/lib/libgeos.so
$ dpkg -s libgeos-dev
Package `libgeos-dev' is not installed and no info is available.
$ gdal-config --dep-libs
-L/usr/lib -lgeos -lodbc -L/usr/lib -lxerces-c -lpthread -ljasper -lmfhdf -ldf -lgif -ljpeg -ltiff -lpng -lnetcdf -lcfitsio -L/usr/lib -lpq -lz -lpthread -lm -lrt -ldl
$ dpkg -s libgdal1-1.3.1 | grep Version
(this hasn't changed since March)
I am wondering what changed in the GRASS source so now we need geos devel
packages as well?
New GRASS 6.3+ packages will have to add libgeos-dev to the build-depends
list in the debian/control file.
