dylan@basho:~$ locate cpl_port

...However, the file didn't make it into /usr/include/ until after the "make 
install " step...

After copying the GDAL-specific headers to /usr/include:
find . -name "*.h" -exec cp '{}' /usr/include/ \;

... make seems to be chugging along fine... but then there is what seems to be 
an endless loop with:

make[965]: Entering directory `/home/dylan/src/gdal-1.2.5/frmts'
make[965]: Nothing to be done for `default'.
make[965]: Leaving directory `/home/dylan/src/gdal-1.2.5/frmts'
(cd ogr; make lib )
make[965]: Entering directory `/home/dylan/src/gdal-1.2.5/ogr'
make[965]: Nothing to be done for `lib'.
make[965]: Leaving directory `/home/dylan/src/gdal-1.2.5/ogr'
[ad infinitum]

and a CTRL-C results in:
make[11]: *** [check-lib] Interrupt
make[10]: *** [check-lib] Interrupt
make[9]: *** [check-lib] Interrupt
make[8]: *** [check-lib] Interrupt
make[7]: *** [check-lib] Interrupt
make[6]: *** [check-lib] Interrupt
make[5]: *** [check-lib] Interrupt
make[4]: *** [check-lib] Interrupt
make[3]: *** [check-lib] Interrupt
make[2]: *** [check-lib] Interrupt
make[1]: *** [check-lib] Interrupt
make: *** [check-lib] Interrupt

something strange is going on here....

Any ideas?
