Well, I ended up doing this the hard way (by hand) by creating a legend file
(table like this without header row of course) to use with d.vect.area:
1 xxx xxx xxx
2 xxx xxy xxy
and so on
which worked fine after I got a RGB pallette from the web
Now, I would like to display a legend along with the colored map matching the
category labels to the colors.
