[GRASSLIST:4876] image classification question

Hi all,

I have two sets of image/raster data of the same region acquired at
different times. I am able to perform unsupervised radiometric
classifications on each of them. Just for interest I would like to classify
each of the scenes using the signatures defined for the other image (group).
For instance, to classify scene2 with the signatures from scene1, I cd'ed to
and made a
        ln -s $LOCATION/group/group1/subgroup/subgroup1/sig/sigfile1 .
        i.maxlik group=scene2 subgroup=subscene2 sigfile=sigfile1 
results in
        Can't read signature file sigfile1
I fear, that it isn't related to the existance of the file but all the
contents (the number of pixels per class, the variance matrices etc.).
What did I make wrong and how can I get my results?

In other words: How can I generate a (valid) signature file by hand?

All this applies to GRASS 4.2.1.

Thanks in advance for any help,
