There are *two* different (probably soon three) backends providing ip-based geo balancing. 

To use GeoIP backend, you need libyaml0.5-dev and libgeoip-dev. I cannot remember if it's
distributed along with PowerDNS binary packages. 

For Geo backend follow the instructions sent by Kai Bojens.

As author of GeoIP backend, I am interested to hear what problems you are facing with the manual page.
