Under Mac OS X 10.5, current version of [trunk/qgis/cmake/FindGEOS.cmake@9093 FindGEOS.cmake] macro does not detect GEOS installed from the excellent GEOS framework v3.0.0-2 package by William Kyngesburye.

I've followed the official BuildingFromSource instructions and cmake command reported that some dependencies are not found, but no specific error for GEOS was printed.

Anyway, I patched the FindGEOS.cmake in more portable way based on FindGDAL.cmake and used it to successfully build QGIS from SVN trunk (r9104).

I'm attaching patch with my version of the FindGEOS.cmake macro.

Hmm, as I see I can not edit Ticket description for QGIS, so please could anyone fix broken link to FindGEOS.cmake file adding source: prefix?

[source:trunk/qgis/cmake/FindGEOS.cmake@9093 [[FindGEOS]].cmake]

I can confirm this issue. I've always mapped it manually with:
-D GEOS_INCLUDE_DIR=/Library/Frameworks/GEOS.framework/unix/include -D GEOS_LIBRARY=/Library/Frameworks/GEOS.framework/unix/lib/libgeos.dylib
in my cmake statement. There are some other frameworks I similarly map (proj, gdal, and sqlite).

Using a generic 'cmake ..' run, it is only the geos framework that is not discovered. I am also using William Kyngesburye's frameworks, and this was rev 9104.
