Glory be and many thanks to libtool, libproject, once known as libproj4 has
just seen the light of day as a shared library. The once static linked
mapmaking routines linked in to the library and reduced their disk footprint
from about 750k down to around 20k.
Still a bit of a problem resolving details on the *config.h in spotting
references to the pthread and gsl libraries. The proj-4.* stuff has never
seemed to ever attemp to provide thread proof service nor employ gsl. The
latter should, of course, be optional because of licensing but I can't see
any reason not thread-proofing. But proj-4.* is years out of date so the
comparison is specious.
Hopefully not too many more days until release of libproject.
The whole religious complexion of the modern world is due
