Hi Brad,
  I have installed proj, numpy, nemesis and FIAT. However, I am not able to
install spatialdata.
I did the following steps to install spatialdata.
$run svn co http://geodynamics.org/svn/cig/cs/spatialdata-0.1/trunk
$autoreconf -if
$make install

Please also find attached for config.log. Thank you.

Please check to make sure nemesis was installed correctly. You should 
have "nemesis" and "mpinemesis" in $PREFIX/bin.

In section 3.3.2 of the manual, please note that you will also need to
proj (before spatialdata), spatialdata, nemesis, numpy (before FIAT), and 
FIAT. Your linux distribution probably has binary packages for proj and 

FIAT is available from http://www.fenics.org/wiki/Download.

The nemesis tarball is posted on the PyLith download page: 

Spatialdata is also CIG software, but the tarball is not posted on the web 
page. To checkout the source, run
svn co http://geodynamics.org/svn/cig/cs/spatialdata-0.1/trunk spatialdata
You will need to run "autoreconf -if" and "configure" like you do for the
PyLith source.
