Because I am not in any way involved with "pj_transformer" I cannot 
help you
with your problem.  However, if all you wish to do is transform NAD83 
Carolina coordinates to geographic coordinates, I think there is a far 
way: libproj4.

Everything up to pj_init is the same but instead of using 
pj_transformer you
simply use pj_inv (inverse entry).  In addition, skip "parm_out" as it 
is not needed,
nor any of the pnt[XY] stuff.  Output of pj_inv is geographic 
coordinates in radians.

The following script does an example where the program "lproj" is a 
application program that gives users access to the libproj4 library:

n83_3200="+proj=lcc  +a=6378137 +es=.0066943800229 \
+lon_0=-79 +lat_1=36d10 +lat_2=34d20 +lat_0=33d45 \
+x_0=609601.22 +y_0=0 +units=us-ft"
lproj $n83_3200 -f %.9f -I  <<EOF
2982350.290 849500.700

The results are:

-75.676777193   36.038892808

which match your Corpscon6 and cs2cs trials.

Entry pj_inv may still be left in the material you have and if it is, I 
you check it out.

As an editorial comment to the general audience, this is why I believe 
the separation of operations.  Kitchen sink procedures
cloud the issue for those seeking solution to simple processes.  Let 
functions do projection, datum shifts, XYZ transforms, etc.  Just make 
easy to assemble the set of building blocks needed.
