If you're focused on the N pole, Polar Stereographic projection may be
the way to go.

e.g. NASA's Blue Marble 2002 and Night on Earth reprojected from lat/long:

IIRC grid was done with with v.mkgrid in lat/long location then
reprojected, 'd.grid -g' isn't as robust.

(from  http://grass.osgeo.org/screenshots/raster.php)

there are a few versions to choose from:
$ proj -lp | grep -i Stereo
