the file is generated, but put into .../gazetteer/.lib/gazetteer.so
(autotools default)

"make install" will put it into $prefix/lib/osm2pgsql
(default: /usr/local/lib/osm2pgsql/gazetteer.so )

you can load it from either places

my problem with the extension was that i did not have


on this ubuntu test box yet

looks as if i need to tweak the gazetteer README file a little bit
