See http://www.remotesensing.org/gdal/ to download it.

The "Related Projects" page under the "GRASS Resources" section of the GRASS
web site is where I found it.  When building GDAL if you just run
'configure' with no particular options it will install it's libraries 
under /usr/local/lib
(at least on Red Hat 6.2 Linux boxes).  I didn't bother figuring out the
right configure parameter, I just do

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/local/lib

within the grass section and then r.in.gdal works right.

hope it helps,
