[Proj] rHEALPix new parameters

The full list of proj.4 errors are in pj_strerrno.c.  I have added
a few #define constants for errors in projects.h, but I haven't
tried to add these for older errors.  Right now it can be relatively
hard to find all the places a particular error code might come from!

I guess just look at the error text and try to chose something appropriate.
I'd generally not encourage adding new error codes if avoidable.

Note that a point not being in the projection space on inverse
projection is (I think) normally just represented by returning
HUGE_VAL, not by setting an error number.
