Excellent!  That seems to work.

I have now tested an installer and applied the following changes:

  o Upgrade versions for proj, libtiff, libgeotiff, and gdal to recent
    stable versions.
  o added --without-x in libungif library to avoid dragging in X dependencies
  o added curl support in GDAL (for WCS driver).

I'm having a problem with picking up libidn dependencies on libcurl and
possibly elsewhere when building everything on FC4.  I may commit changes to
build without libidn for curl and possible other stuff.  Does anyone forsee
a problem with this?  I gather libidn is some sort of DNS lookup library.
But I assume things fallback to using normal operating system mechanism when
it isn't used directly.
