How about:  using the pbmplus tools, 
		ppmtorast scan_file > rast_file rast_file
				(into an x, y location)

		i.points and i.rectify to give grass_rast_file
		real world coordinates and move it to your real world

If you don't have the PBMplus tools that came with GRASS source code: try
getting it from:

    PBMPLUS, by Jef Poskanzer.  Comprehensive format conversion and image
    manipulation package.  The latest version is always available via
    anonymous FTP as*.tar.Z,*.tar.Z,
