Dear R People:

I'm trying to install spsurvey and rgeos in R-2.15.1 on Ubuntu 12.04.

However, I am getting the following:

* installing *source* package ‘rgeos’ ...
** package ‘rgeos’ successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked
checking geos-config usability... ./configure: line 1342: geos-config:
command not found
configure: error: geos-config not usable
ERROR: configuration failed for package ‘rgeos’
* removing ‘/home/erin/R/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-library/2.15/rgeos’
ERROR: dependencies ‘deldir’, ‘rgeos’ are not available for package ‘spsurvey’
* removing ‘/home/erin/R/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-library/2.15/spsurvey’

Do these look familiar please?
