I'm not sure about converting an export file, but you can export
a grid directly from Arc to GRASS with the GRIDIMAGE command.
I think you must write directly to a GRASS mapset from Arc.
The syntax is something like:

gridimage gridname colorfile $LOCATION:mapset:grassname GRASS

The syntax for specifying GRASS location and mapset with the colons
must be observed. You must also specify the GRID colorfile name if you
want it in GRASS. Good luck.
