sorry, to say, but I am rather sure that r.in.hdf doesn't read ASTER.
ASTER is in HDF-EOS while r.in.hdf is supporting HDF3.2.
Unless GDAL get's extended or r.in.hdf updated to the current HDF/HDF-EOS
library there is no way (please tell me if I am wrong).
But two converters are available: HDFLook
Both programs allow to convert a HDF-EOS dataset such as ASTER/TERRA to a
plain binary format which can be imported with r.in.bin.
I had success like that (GRASS 5).
