See "shpproj.c" in the contrib directory:

I seem to remember reprojecting SHP files before. PROJ was even
a new PRJ file for me. I thought that if Proj can reproject a whole 
shape file that it might be able to do components thereof.  The script

you speak of, is it an avenue script?  ANy open source solutions as I
avoid running arcview. proof of concept.
