Please have a look here if you are missing a certain command:
 ->  v.in.dxf - replaced by v.in.dwg (note: cannot be compiled by 
                default or distributed in binary)
   -> http://grass.gdf-hannover.de/twiki/bin/view/GRASS/GrassSixTutorialFaq#2_DXF_and_DWG_files
      "DXF and DWG files"

Q: How to import DXF/DWG files?

A: There are legal conflicts between the required 'openDWG' library and the GRASS GPL. We are not allowed to distribute the library (so the module) along with the GRASS code. Please see the v.in.dwg HTML page for further details (or  http://mpa.itc.it/markus/tmp/v.in.dwg.html )

Hope this helps
