The Wiki lists d.colormode as not ported because it is "obsolete"
without why.

I think that is a porting error, not a code error. d.colormode just
calls R_color_table_float() which is still alive in the raster library.

Did you just copy over the binary from GRASS 5?

Try copying over source code into grass6 source tree, plagiarize the
directory structure and Makefile from say d.colors, and run make.
