I have worked with vector files from grass into gmt. You can
v.out.ascii your grass vector files, then strip the grass header,
then with a awk can substitute de Ls and As (the grass line
and area separator) with > (the gmt line segment separator).

I have also made an awk invers conversor, from gmt to grass. If you
are ineterested let me know.
