It should be the GRASS names for everything (if you insist on using
m.proj ;) ). GRASS used proj=ll back in the early '90s when the standard proj
did not allow use a 'pseudo-projection' of lat/long and everything had to be
treated as either a forward or inverse projection from/to lat/long. When
Frank made his improvements he chose to use proj=latlong or proj=longlat, so
the GRASS 'proj=ll' was left as an historical oddity. As far as I can make
out anyway that is what has happened.

Is this PROJ bug 368? ( http://bugzilla.remotesensing.org/show_bug.cgi?
id=368 ) I have applied a fix to the internal PROJ in the GRASS CVS that
should fix this...could you maybe try that (compile 5.3 --with-proj=no)
