Thanks very much!

I've run checks (Fedora 22, current gcc) on this tarball (passes fine) rgdal
itself built against 4.9.2), and on the > 100 packages that declare
dependence (depend, links to, imports, suggests) on rgdal (and use PROJ
through rgdal - here 4.9.2). From a cursory reading of 8 failures, none seem
to be related to PROJ (things like not setting random number seeds, missing
LaTeX packages, etc). Today I'll run the same checks on the root sp package
in the same format and report back.


PS. A user reports that MacPorts 4.9.1 is affected by the absence of
proj_def.dat - the current rgdal shows more verbose messages. The user
patched it manually:
