I have tested it, but it seems to fail:

checking for location of External PROJ.4 data files...
checking for /epsg... no
configure: warning: *** Unable to locate PROJ data files.
checking for nad2bin... /usr/local/bin/nad2bin

I have things in /usr/local/... and usually do not use any
parameters for proj. 
Maybe /usr/local/share needs to be predefined somewhere to catch that?
As far as I understand the code
is not defined in this case - subsequently PROJSHARE is not

Nice, soon we'll have this long standing problem of hard-coded
path being removed.
