Something does appear to be broken.
To fix: comment out the last assignment statement in the file proj_lcc.c.
P->spc = fac;
/* P->spc = fac; */
This forces the software to do numerical estimation of scale, blah, blah
rather than use the analytic equations within lcc.
At the moment, I do no know whether the procedure that calls fac or fac itself
is the problem but something is broken in more ways than just the
Recompile and link.

The whole religious complexion of the modern world is due
to the absence from Jerusalem of a lunatic asylum.
