Since you're in the fgs-dev environment, you have to build the 'proj' 
package with fgs-dev.  To accomplish this you have to follow these steps:

-add 'proj' in $FGS_DEV_HOME/build.list ($FGS_DEV_HOME stands for the 
fgs-dev root directory)
-set your fgsdev environment:  do '. setenv.sh' in $FGS_DEV_HOME/build.list
-execute:  fgs-dev build_pkg proj
