Installing Postgis 2.1.0SVN on Arch

I wanted to try the new Tiger geocoder extension that’s coming with PostGIS 2.1.0.  I set up a PKGBUILD to upgrade the 2.0.2 that’s in Arch’s repository.

Since this is a major version upgrade a hard upgrade is required.  The upgrade went smoothly except the spatial_ref_sys table wasn’t populated.  Running the spatial_ref_sys.sql script found at /usr/share/postgresql/contrib/postgis-2.1 solved that problem.
