The reason for the non-identical grid shift files is that the nad2bin
output was not reproducible prior to PROJ.4 4.9.3, see:


The ID is now zero padded instead of containing random data, and the ID
field is the only difference between the grid shift files in
proj-datumgrids-1.6 and those created from the .lla files included in
1.5 and earlier. See for example the diff for the hexdumps of the null
datum grid.
