But to safely eliminate access to system libs as a problem, it seems unlikely that I could run proj from the command line if it couldn't access stdio.h. So, back to the access investigation...

Yup, no luck there either. Another possibility I am considering is my MapServer build.

My immediate workaround has been to run my latlong data as a batch file through proj (works like a charm) and just update my database accordingly. So, no projection on the fly for the time being, but I'll build MapServer again once I confirm that it's playing nice with other components.
