gpsd is a service daemon that monitors one or more GPSes attached to a 
host computer through serial or USB ports, making all data on the location,
course, and velocity available to be queried on TCP port 2947 of the host
computer. With gpsd, multiple GPS client applications (such as navigational
and wardriving software) can share access to GPSes without contention or
loss of data. Applications that presently use gpsd include Viking and Kismet.

See for some additional build options that might be useful.
