To crop to a rectangular region, use g.region (or d.zoom) to change
the region, then r.resample to create a new map from the portion of
the map inside the current region.

To crop to a non-rectangular region, create a raster map which defines
the region of interest, set it as a mask (with r.mask, or by naming
the map "MASK"), then use r.resample.
