Now I'm just being greedy; is it much more effort to allow bold text on
the graticule labels as well? Should I file a wish instead?

>ok, makes sense. That font size was hard-coded in d.grid as "9". I've
just added a fontsize= option in CVS so you can make this bigger without
all the extra work of manual

controls will need updating to take advantage of this.

$GRASS_FONT to set it before calling d.grid. Many truetype fonts look
bigger & more readable vs the simple >grass ones. e.g. try a bold font.

couldn't see it.
