Looks good. As an aside it'd be easier to install on Mac OS if you  
made the required version of libproj 4.4.8 instead of 4.4.9 -  
assuming 4.4.8 is actually adequate.

A lot of people will be using fink to get libproj and fink is at  
version 4.4.8.

With Makefile.PL suitably amended the tests pass so I assume it's OK.
