Yes, if you'd like to get this functionality enabled in postgis the prerequisites need to be available Debian. That's the reason why it's not enabled already. The Debian GIS team is understaffed like many Free Software projects, so don't expect anyone to start packaging sfcgal after you file a RFP bug for it. Packaging it yourself is the most promising road forward. Please refer to the Debian GIS Policy for information about joining and contributing to the Debian GIS team if you intend to package sfcgal. http://pkg-grass.alioth.debian.org/policy/index.html#introduction Kind Regards, Bas _______________________________________________ Pkg-grass-devel mailing list Pkgfirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.alioth.debian.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/pkg-grass-devel
