Using the ogr2ogr program to transform from shape to tab or visa versa 
gives us the following error when specifying the s_srs parameter as an 
EPSG value. the syntax is as follows:

ogr2ogr -f "MapInfo File" -a_srs "EPSG:25832" 

ERROR 4: Unable to open EPSG support file gcs.csv.
Try setting the GDAL_DATA environment variable to point to the
directory containing EPSG csv files.
Failed to process SRS definition: EPSG:25832

The GDAL_DATA is set to to the csv library and we ahve also tried to 
copy all the csv files into the smae libray as ogr2ogr. Can any body 
help us?
