Of course it is safe!---this is the default. r.in.gdal probably will not 
work if you specify --without-gdal

r.out.gdal does not use the GDAL library so --with-gdal or --without-gdal 
is irrelevant for it. It uses gdal_translate and you must compile GDAL with
GRASS support. Or a workaround is to use r.out.tiff to create a tiff 
image together with world file, g.proj -wf to create projection information
and to merge them all together with gdal_translate. See the r.out.gdal script
for a hint on how to do this.
