Did you install the NAD27-83 correction files?
"How do I build/configure PROJ.4 to support datum shifting.
After downloading and unpacking the PROJ.4 source, also download and unpack the set of datum shift files. This would be a file like ftp://ftp.remotesensing.org/pub/proj/proj-nad27-1.1.tar.gz. This file should be unpacked within the proj/nad directory. Then proceed with the configuration, build and install. This will ensure that the build system knows about the grid shift files, and applies the ascii to binary preprocessing step.

How do I debug problems with NAD27/NAD83 datum shifting?
 The PROJ_DEBUG environment can be defined (any value) to force extra output from the PROJ.4 library to stderr...

Once I had the same problem and installation of proj-nad27-1.1.tar.gz
helped together with recompilation of PROJ4.
