+ Note that current package includes datum shifts which are traditionally
+ distributed off the main tarball, and now maintained in a separate per arch
+ proj-data package. Ssome of the enclosed files are arch independent
+ and some other are not, because written as CTABLE structure. You need to use
+ the nad2bin utility to regenerate those files starting from the distributed
+ if you wish, and the program must be run on the right target host.
+ The original datum shifts are at the date of this program:
+ and chenyx06.zip for the Swiss NTv2 grid.
+ Old packages did not contain the additional datum shifts due to an oversight
+ and needed to be integrated with the lacking information in order to work
+ correctly with some projections and world areas (US, Canadian, French and
+ New Zealand).
+ Note also that Canada distributes also its own better quality datum shifts
+ information in NTv2 format, but they are not re-distributable, so if you
+ would use those information you are on your own.
