You're welcome :)

Perfect. That's usually what we need.

Dries already added the geos project. I now also added the proj and
opengis packages. So left remaining is gdal and mapserver and their
dependencies: jasper-devel cfitsio-devel hdf-devel librx-devel
libdap-devel netcdf-devel hdf5-devel ogdi-devel libgeotiff-devel
Lots to do :/
