How pkgsrc does things is to unpack both proj-datumgrids-1.5 and
proj-4.9.x, and then to ln the datumgrids files into proj-4.9.x/nad.
So the mere presence of files that used to not be present, even if not
installed, causes trouble.

Where are the files that make up proj-datumgrids stored?   Maybe it's
time to put them in proj git and just have them always included.
