I suggest you do what mapbuilder developers had to do...
Which is to rip open proj4 (http://proj.maptools.org/) and lookup the
projection calculation you are looking for in there.
The file you want should have look like PJ_<your projection>.c. Keep in
mind that inside that file, the coordinates are all in radians and not
