Maybe the file is in one of the newer gif formats, and maybe GRASS can't
read these?  In any case, I might try using xv, netpbm, image alchemy, or
something else to transform the file to another format.  In fact, one may
well be able to transform your gif file into another gif file which can be
imported into GRASS.
