Proj and invproj perform respective forward and inverse transformation
of cartographic data to or from Cartesian data with a wide range of
selectable projection functions (over 100 projections).
Geod and invgeod perform geodesic (Great Circle) computations for
determining latitude, longitude and back azimuth of a terminus point given
a initial point latitude, longitude, azimuth and distance (direct) or the
forward and back azimuths and distance between an initial and terminus
point latitudes and longitudes (inverse).
This package contains auxiliary projection datum grids used by the
library and tools.

are non endianess-aware and generated at build time on the host. That
could possibly change in the future, so better still having a single package.
