I've been trying since March to get basemap working with 3.0.x, it can
build but doesn't work properly. The basemap developer has also been
trying and can't get anywhere. So at the moment, the only solution is
to have a separate geos3 port. As you want to add ports that require
geos3 we'll have to go that way.
