Thank you !

	Yeah, that'll work.
So keep it that way, there'll be another update later with compilation options
and things like that.

	Because, I don't really understand why that helps...
I'm currently fiddling with build options and my tests are showing that it
doesn't seem to find installed gdal when it's there.
And there are a few undocumented configuration options, even a QT5 version that
doesn't build (but fails at 50%, just to be sure you loose as much time as
possible :)).

So, go for it, and I'll investigate further on my side !
