Hmm. I actually just thought of a way to do this. There are programs and diagrams out there that show what note each fret is for each string for guitar and ukulele.

Here's the diagram for the guitar:

And here's the ukulele:

There are probably way better charts out there, this is just what I found first on my search. Figure out what the notes on the guitar are and then pick your favorite fingers on the uke fret. Not too hard. I'd suggest downloading a freeware tab making program that supports ukes and just note on that. This way you don't really have to fart around with the circle of 5ths. This is probably how I am going to do any conversion. It's pretty painless.
