Yes the functionality has been in GRASS for many years AFAIK. The relevant 
module is v.cadlabel. It needs to be run after import with v.in.dxf. A 
few years ago I was working with a DXF file and could have done with 
this functionality, but I wasn't aware of it then and have never used it
so can't offer any help. But v.cadlabel is still there in 5.4.
