[GRASS-dev] PIL needs to be a GRASS dependency

Since the Python Imaging Library (PIL) is needed to fully use the cartographic composer, this needs to be a dependency of GRASS, just like numpy. Since both of these packages do not come with the standard Python distribution, it would be good if we could package/bundle them in binary distributions. Otherwise, stuff will not work. This is needed for GRASS 6.4 as well as GRASS 7. I'm not sure what is needed for this to happen, but it will be helpful to users (and very frustrating to them if not there).
