PostGIS has an extension called postgis_tiger_geocoder, I have a few questions about it (all pretty tied together),

  • Is it possible to build that without building the rest of PostGIS?
  • If so, can I use the copy I build with my distro-installed PostGIS.

Ubuntu packages required to buildpostigs

xsltproc libgeos-dev libproj-dev libgdal-dev libjson0-dev docbook-xsl

I think the answer to this is simply no. While this may get fixed at some point in time, and it should be fixed soon for the sanity and great glory, until then you may find this useful
