The gdal package in pkgsrc-wip depends on wip/geos2 which I couldn't
see anywhere.

I also did a gdal package some time ago, but didn't bother splitting
into docs and lib sub-packages, so yours is nicer.  I also did a grass
package (and remember having to make shedloads of patches for non-root
builds, but that's rather tangential to the gdal packages).
