Done that and uninstalled libproj9 as it is still in requires: for 
[prev] releases with libproj12 for current releases, except for 
libgeotiff2 which only shows libproj9 not libproj12.

as long as I know it shows on Pending. Should run on 32 as well as it 
has been around for 5 years in current setup.
