another option may be:

 v.what.rast: Uploads raster values at positions of vector points to the table.

Additionally, in GRASS >= 6.4 you can do a selective random sampling
with v.extract:
 v.extract ...
    Number of random categories matching vector objects to extract
    Number must be smaller than unique cat count in layer
 -> Example: Extract 3 random areas from geology map

Combining these modules you'll be able to perform the extraction.


PS: Please consider (later) to create a small FAQ in the GRASS Wiki -
      solved once, solved "forever"...
