Make GDAL an optional requirement

The GDAL library is magnitudes more complicated to install than GEOS and is not required for the basic GIS functionality (WKT, geometry operations, querying). And GDAL won't work on windows anytime soon.
The attached patch to mixin.py checks for gdal and throws exceptions in the get_GEOM_ogr() and get_GEOM_srs() methods. models.py already has a similar check.
