[OSRS-PROJ] lib call results differ from exec results

For local execution of the runline:

echo "-110.969 39.7621"|./lproj +proj=aea +ellps=clrk66 +lat_1=20
+lat_2=60 +lon_0=110w +lat_0=40
-78175.38       -27659.27

which is a much more reasonable value for a point fairly close
to the projection origin of -110,40.

One problem is there is a "," (comma) in the input stream.
'lproj' or 'proj' only understand white-space delimiting.

As for the scanning of "default" file I must admit it was there
earlier and was always a curse.  Number one question after someone
installed the system was why it failed---most of the time the
default file could not be found.  Some setup failure.

I got rid of it but it still haunts me.
