[Gdal-dev] Import WorldClim data byte issue

we tried to import the worldclim tile data (generic format BIL)
Unfortunately the result ranges from 0-65535.
The page http://www.worldclim.org/format.htm describes
"The data files (.BIL) are sequential binary files in which
values are stored line by line from the upper-left to the
lower-right corner. Each cell (pixel) is an integer value
(2 bytes; -32768..32767).
Do I need postprocessing (such as r.mapcalc in GRASS) to
read these maps or is there another nice trick?
