OK, I have a very preliminary "base" package that seems to sort of work.
It is at:


As it stands it has no documentation about how to use it or anything.  You
might use it like this:

$ mkdir fgs
$ cd fgs
$ tar xzvf ~/fgs-base.tar.gz
$ vi setenv.sh (change FGS_HOME to where you unpacked it)
$ . setenv.sh
$ gdalinfo

I think I have worked around the "rpath" issue by avoiding use of libtool
when I build GDAL.  This package only includes libtiff, proj and gdal - libraries
and utilities. But I want to get a better sense of the compatibility issues we
are likely to run into with it.

I will likely work on a mapserver package that would be external to base
this weekend.

I would encourage folks to think more about how they want to manage the
environment, "installation" and documentation.
