The library versioning for the 4.9.2RC2 tarball is correct.

4.9.1 built:

 libproj.so -> libproj.so.9.0.0
 libproj.so.9 -> libproj.so.9.0.0

And 4.9.2 RC2:

 libproj.so -> libproj.so.9.1.0
 libproj.so.9 -> libproj.so.9.1.0

Not all then changes from the ChangeLog mentioned at the start of the
thread are actually in the 4.9.2RC2 tarball.

The PVALUE change is only in git, not in the tarball.

git master also bumps the SONAME to libproj.so.10 which I don't think is
required for the PVALUE change.

Another change between git master and the 4.9.2RC2 tarball is the
inclusion of the unused src/hypot.c & src/nad_list.h only in git, not in
the tarball. Those two can probably be dropped from git too.

This is a very welcome change.
