Revive space package?

I’m trying to update SWI-Prolog’s official docker images. Debian stretch is getting too old (build breaks due to too old CMake), so I’d like to move to bullseye. This however updated updated libspatialindex to version 6, breaking the included space package.

Now, what to do? Are there active users of the space pack? If so, could someone try to make this pack work again on the current libspatialindex? Mostly requires some experience with C++ portability issues … Please volunteer. If there are no volunteers I propose to remove the space pack from the Docker.

The issues were resolved by @swi. Thanks! A PR to update the official docker images to 8.4.1/8.5.2 including the space package has been submitted. This PR updates the base image from Debian stretch to bullseye.
