Also important, because nad2bin is executed to convert the .lla files,
the build should be preformed on a system that has at least proj 4.9.3
installed, to avoid changing the binary files unnecessarily. Prior
releases did not zero pad the ID field making the result of nad2bin
Due to the lack of version information in nad2bin, the FindNAD2BIN.cmake
cannot enforce the version requirement.
