[Proj] Minor initialization problem

It seems I ran into a hole in the C specification regarding arrays of constant 
chars which make the compilation of proj_init exude a warning but will 
compile OK.

I was hoping to use a construct making the character string array elements of 
argv as type const.  But that is either impossible or impractical.  However, 
internal usage of the arrays are as const even though the prototype is 
void *proj_init(int, char **);

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