This problem pops up about once a month or maybe more frequently. It seems
like at a minimum it would be good to edit the error message to say
something like Glynn responded. Or maybe point the user to a FAQ somewhere.

You need to create a location whose projection matches the data you
wish to import.
Try using g.proj with the -c flag and the location= and georef=
options to create a new location based upon the projection information
in the file.
You should then be able to import the file into that location with
r.in.gdal. If desired, you can then re-project it to another location
