distance between patch edges

Dear All

I've got a raster map with a number of different patches (habitat blocks)
and need to calculate the shortest distance from the edge of each patch to
the edge of all other patches.  Using r.volume (in combination with other
commands) is OK to calculate centroid distances, but not edge distances.
r.le.dist works only for one nearest patch (M4 option) or a specific group
(M9), not all patches.  Any suggestions?
