well, what I really need:

A tool which detects from common GIS file the settings (north, south,
east, west, rows, cols, res, proj, zone, datum,...). It should
simply print out these values.

Then I could run my "build_location.sh" script and that's it.

Probably I am just re-inventing the wheel and GDAL could be easily
used for the purpose to have such a small stand-alone program. As I want to
generate a location, this must be run outside of GRASS.
If working well, it can become part of the future entrance screen
which will have the functionality to generate locations from a dataset.
