In the gdal/data directory are a bunch of .csv files containing the EPSG
tables.  In a default install they would be placed in /usr/local/share/gdal
and found their by GDAL.  If you install somewhere odd you can set the
GEOTIFF_CSV environment to point to the directory containing the .csv files.

When it succeeds ImportFromEPSG() should has a result code of 0.
