Mapnik not being in git is just one of the many issues with this doc. For
example, mapnik, if you get the current build from git, won't compile under
Ubuntu 10.04. You've got to go back and get an earlier 2.0 version or add a
PPA and get packages that other people have created.

The libboost versions of 1.40 don't work with 2.0 versions of mapnik
either. You need at least 1.41 but those packages aren't available for
10.04, so you need to add a PPA for 1.42 versions.

If you try and build this on a newer version of ubuntu you run across other
similar package and software version problems. Ubuntu 11.10 comes with
Postgres 9 and there are enough changes there that I was unable to get a
PostGIS server with Mapnik working.

All of this is why I suggested that a chef recipe, a juju charm, and a
pre-configured VM would all be ideal ways to prevent this sort of thing
from happening.
