Hi Brian,
May be my suggestion is too late, but you can still do it by,
this command is not in official release of GRASS 4.1 but very good info
you can find at Marcus's Neteler page at /try to compile only,
r.out.tiff or you can download release of grass4.2.1/
Another way how to get it is open your *.tif image at XView and save it
like *.ras /sun raster file/ and then run
I prefer, because of better image quality.

Good luck
