Actually, I seem to be getting a bit closer with nad2nad.  I removed the older rpm and compiled the latest source. Here is the incantation that at least lets me talk to the code:

# nad2nad -i 83,utm=10 -o 27,utm=10  -        
Rel. 4.4.5, 9 January 2002
conversion region (-r) not specified
program abnormally terminated

So I try:

# nad2nad -i 83,utm=10 -o 27,utm=10 -r ntv1_can -
Rel. 4.4.5, 9 January 2002
datum file: ntv1_can, failed: no system list, errno: 2

program abnormally terminated

A check of my /usr/local/src/proj4*/nad directory reveals the following files:
# ls

alaska.lla  hawaii.lla   nad27          pj_out83.dist          README.NADUS  test83
conus.lla   Makefile     nad83          proj_def.dat           stgeorge.lla  TN.lla
epsg        Makefile.am  nad.lst        proj-nad27-1.1.tar.gz  stlrnc.lla    WI.lla
FL.lla      Makefile.in  ntv1_can.dat   prvi.lla               stpaul.lla    WO.lla
GL27        MD.lla       pj_out27.dist  README                 test27        world

Was an ntv1_can.lla file supposed to have been created during the compile?
