When PROJ_DEBUG is defined, libproj produces a variety of output to stderr,
but that isn't meant to imply an actual error has occured.  With the current
code (in CVS) the word "failed" or "succeeded" comes after the above message.
Perhaps it doesn't do that in 4.4.6?  I am surprised.

Note that the normal problem people encounter is that the "nobody" user
doesn't have read access on /usr/local/share/proj/* for some reason.
