[GRASSLIST:5106] value of Null in CELL rasters

Dear all,

I am exporting my raster coverages to GMT to draw pretty maps (so 
I find). For CELL files (ie results of a r.clump in my case) the 
commands do work well. Note the -ZTLh option in xyz2grd 
necessary to such integer grid.

R=`g.region -p | awk '{if($1 ~ "west") west=$2} {if($1 ~ "east") 
east=$2} {if($1 ~ "north") north=$2} {if($1 ~ "south") 
south=$2}END{printf "-R%s/%s/%s/%s",west,east,south,north}'`
echo $R

r.out.bin input=$inGRASS output=- | xyz2grd $R -ZTLh -F -I10 -
Dm/m/m/1/0/=/= -G$outGMT

As it happens the result of r.clump contains loads of Null values. 
The switch -N"number" explicitly defines what Null values are. But 
what is it in case of integer rasters? Is it different for other types of 
raster (ie floating points)?
