This sounds like what often happens if you have an old version
of PROJ from within the ogdi tree getting built in.  You need to take

it will build in a copy of PROJ that conflicts with modern ones.

Any reason for the FGS site not to be the primary?   No change required
to scripts, just cache a copy on the master.
