I'm going to hold back on the 4.6.1 release till this can be worked out.  There
is no point in letting this into widespread use with different names from
libproj4.  I've created a ticket for the issue and assigned it to Richard


Richard Didier can bring PROJ.4 into line with libproj4, or provide an
explanation for why there is a difference.  I haven't heard from Richard
on other points in a couple days so he may be on vacation.

Thanks for the review!
