It is important, when upgrading the GDAL/OGR lib to 1.2.0, to remove
properly the old files. In older versions of GDAL/OGR the library was
split into several files (gdal.a, ogr.a, ...). Clean off these files
first, the compile/install the new version (libgdal.so....), then
reconfigure/recompile GRASS (as you are working with source code) to be sure
that it picks up the new library.

I have upgraded GDAL/OGR on grass.itc.it to the latest version, the
precompiled Linux binaries are linked to that now:
