[Proj] PROJ 4.9.0RC1

I was hoping that the patch for the NTv2 bugs could be incorporated into this release


This addresses the fact that nested Ntv2 grids are not handled properly - they either crash proj, or
give the wrong answers.  I have been able to work around this by making an deliberately corrupted
nested NTv2 file that works, but I don't really want to be propogating corrupt data to work around this!

Would be great if this could be included in 4.9

I have discovered that PROJ.4 was left with a hanging beta
again some time ago without my following up on the release.
Grr, I'm lame!  Anyways, Howard Butler and I have made a
pass through open bugs and fixed some.  Howard has also
introduced CMake support for PROJ.4 (though the automake
way is also still supported).

I would appreciate feedback before finalizing the release in the coming week.
