The solution which Maciej gives will work. However, a quicker solution
is to just archive the contents of the mapset directories with "tar",
run from the mapset directory itself, copy the tar files to the target
system, then extract them (again, run tar from the mapset directory). 
You should probably use the -k switch when extracting.

The maps will all need to have different names; that's true whether
you use tar or g.copy.

For raster maps, all of the files should be portable between different
architectures, although that may not be the case for other map types
(I think that the old vector format used the platform's native format
in some of its files).
