 Well, I tried to fix it in r.profile, but I failed. I couldn't find a
 correct way to get the meter-whateverfeet conversion. The problem is that
 in the US they apparently use FootUS instead of feet, so the standard
 grass mechanism for handling units fails to recognize it as feet. (Survey
 foot = 0.3048006096, international foot = 0.3048). g.proj, on the other
 hand, gives correct conversion.
