Hi Pedro

I believe GDAL relies on Proj for everything related to projections.

Within the Proj installation directory, there is a set of files which
hold code/SRS description pairs. One of these files is named "epsg" and
contains a subset of the EPSG database described with the proj syntax.
In my case (Ubuntu), this file is /usr/share/proj/epsg.

Hope this helps.
