[Proj] Installing Proj on a Mac

It is possible to install proj and GDAL on Mac OSX using the open  
source package manager fink:

The finkcommander GUI application makes specifying and installing  
packages fairly painless. You may need to set fink to use "unstable"  
distributions to get the most recent releases.

I hope this helps,

Fink installs packages in /sw, so you will need to add /sw/bin to  
your path.
