no, natural neighbor is not implemented in grass.
If David Watson wants to release his code in electronic
format, I'd be glad to put a GRASS wrapper around it 
(I have it in printed form but I'm not much for OCR;
I also have a binary, but I'm not much into reverse engineering).

For triangulation, see the GEOM package.

For what it's worth, my tests have shown that the regularized spline
in s.surf.tps does a better job at interpolation than natural neighbor
(with gradient estimation). See the article on "Bivariate
Interpolation" on my homepage (be sure to get the submission to
*Transactions of ASAE* for details).
