GMT & netCDF files

Is anyone else out there using Generic Mapping Tools (GMT) to create
high quality output from GRASS. It runs from the command line and a number of
variables can be adjusted for mapping as required. It can be ftp'd from
kiawe.soest.hawaii.edu, get the tar file GMT.tar.Z form the pub/gmt directory.
It appears to have a number of different projection capabilities that
would prove useful to our organization. Only problem is that it uses
netCDF formatted gridded data. One can get a data set out of GRASS well
enough via r.out.ascii, but in GMT it will only import tri-collumn (xyz) data,
and not flat ascii grids.
Has anyone already written a conversion utility to go from flat
ascii grid to a netCDF format?
I was thinking of using this since other people in our group indicated
that the MAPGEN documentation at charon.er.usgs.gov was outdated and a
nightmare to sort through.
Any comments on either of the above packages would be appreciated.
