Does it break it up spatially, or into R/G/B colour channels?

If it's broken up into colour channels, you can generate a composite
map using r.composite. However, depending upon what you're planning to
do with it, it may be better to leave it as three separate channels. 
Generating a composite map may either lose information, or create a
massive number of categories (and an equally massive colour table), or
a combination of both.
