r.in.arctiff always just called r.in.tiff.  Handling of TIFF world files
was merged into r.in.tiff.  Unfortunately, r.in.tiff is quite buggy.  Am
I understanding that it is segfaulting immediately?  My experience has
been it only segfaults with certain types of TIFF files.  You may try
using r.in.gdal.  However, I haven't had good like with its handling of
the TIFF world files -- it seems to prefer GeoTIFF files that have
projection information encoded in their "directory".  It will still get
the file in, but without georeferencing info.  It's possibly to
calculate tie-points fairly easily for i.rectify from the TIFF world
file.  However, this is less than an ideal way...
