The above seems to imply that you have a "system provided' 
version of PROJ install in /usr/lib and /usr/bin and a version you
built yourself installed in /usr/local/lib and /usr/local/bin.  Your PATH
likely grabs the /usr/bin/proj first, but something else cause it to 
use /usr/local/lib -- hence the mismatch. 

If you are handy with your gentoo packaging system you should likely
uninstall the proj package in /usr/bin and /usr/lib.  If not, just remove it


rm -f /usr/bin/proj /usr/bin/cs2cs
rm -f /usr/lib/libproj.so*
