Avoid shadowed declaration errors with old gcc #880

On an old CentOS with gcc 4.4.7, building with CMake has errors compiling a few files due to the -Wshadow flag. (The build with autotools does not complain since it doesn't enable this flag, but that's possibly a different issue with whatever AX_CFLAGS_WARN_ALL(C_WFLAGS) is doing).

I suspect -Wshadow is more strict with older gcc releases, which is why this not the normal behaviour.

The modifications rename some function variable names, so that they are different than other function names used globally (e.g. log) or elsewhere (e.g. geodetic). If other variable names are preferred, I can swap these.
