Lambert Azimuthal Equal Area

I have vector layers in the Lambert Azimuthal Equal Area projection that I
need to use in GRASS. 
Does anyone know if GRASS can deal with this projection i.e.:
	- is it possible to create a Lambert Azimuthal location, and
	- could layers in any of GRASS predefined projections be 
          transformed into Lambert Azimuthal using v.proj?
I was told that GRASS used to allow the creation of user-defined ellipsoids?
If it is still possible it might be a solution to my problem. Do you have
any ideas about how it is done?
