    You could analyze the modelview and projection matrices for projective parts.
    Find a copy of the OpenGL programming guide (the "redbook") and look into appendix F homogenous transformations. Compare glOrtho and glFrustum matrices, esp. the bottom row.
    (Remeber OpenGL matrices are float [16] arrays and column-major.)
    You could also project points at different x,y,z postions and make sure all points along a eye-z-axis have the same projected x,y coordinates.
