sorry, not libgeos; I replied without reading carefully enough. does
your gdal-config say anything about needing mysql?
$ 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
