I'm trying to convert decimal degrees, in WGS84, to Albers.  My source proj
string is (+proj=latlong +datum=WGS84 +no_defs), and my destination proj
string is (+proj=aea +lat_1=29.5 +lat_2=45.5 +lat_0=23 +lon_0=-96 +x_0=0.0
+y_0=0.0 +ellps=GRS80 units=m +datum=NAD83 +no_defs).  When I use the
latitude and longitude 45 and-117, respectively, I get the following
0.785398163397449/-2.04203522483337.  Any ideas?
