use s.random, but you have to modify it to allow n to be bigger than
32k. I made "int n" into "long int n" and commented out parm.nsites->options

(Maybe worth doing properly in CVS.. 32k is pretty small)


g.region rast=elevation.dted
s.random sites=random_sites n=2500000  #  (122mb)
s.sample input=random_sites rast=elevation.dted > sample_sites

and watch it go..

I think 3-4gig of virtual/swap memory will make it through the 2.5M points.
