[wktraster] Updates to the readme.txt accompanying WKT Raster experimental build

Reported by: pracine Owned by: robe

Some updates for the readme accompanying the WKT Raster experimental build package

1) Line 3 noting that you may need to replace geometry_gist_joinsel is obsolete since this ticket as been fixed.

2) In the "loading raster data" part, we should mention that it is also necessary to download the GDAL binaries ( from before installing the Python GDAL bindings.

3) It is also necessary to install numpy from before installing the Python GDAL bindings.

By the way it is a bit complicated to get from the PostGIS main web page to the Experimental build page… Maybe all Windows build could be in the same page. I know the PostGIS site is very limitating in terms of page structure. Maybe a table in the wiki would be a better place to make a complex page with all the option in the same page…

Strange I thought I had mentioned that and the numpy dependency — unless I accidentally included an older readme in my last set. Anyrate I think Tamas's might be a better option

Since his package includes GDAL 1.7 (and trunk if people want) and the python bindings.

4) Don't forget also to put line 4 (Copy the contents of bin to your PostgreSQL bin folder (, libgdal.dll) to bin folder of your PostgreSQL install.) before 3
