[Proj] Re: datum shifting - cs2cs build or config problem?

Partially solved. I quickly found one explanation - my
$PROJ_LIB was set to c:\proj, but it needed to be set
So now I can run the example from the FAQ correctly.
However, consider this:
C:\proj>cs2cs +proj=latlong +ellps=GRS80 +datum=NAD83
+nadgrids=wi +to +proj=latlong
89d47'59.992"W 44d10'0.003"N 0.000
What I am trying to say is that the input point is
NAD83HPGN(WI), and I want output in NAD83. I've run
this example through both NADCON and WISCON, both give
me the same result, different from what I got above:
-89 48 0.00849 44 9 59.99715
So it probably now comes down to user error - am I not
specifying that cs2cs command line correctly?
