The OGRSpatialReference class in the GDAL/OGR library includes support
for ingesting ESRI .prj files, and converting them to PROJ.4 strings,
along with a variety of other transformations. 

This is a fairly hairy process, so if you wish to do it with reasonable
generality you are likely best off using the OGRSpatialReference to
accomplish it.
