Yes, the rgdal R package, on which spgrass6 depends, requires GDAL >= 1.3.1.
Please do consider installing your software from source, if possible
starting from PROJ.4 and GDAL, then R and the packages needed within R
(which will be built from source anyway).
There have been reports of Ubuntu/Debian binary installs putting headers
and libraries in unlikely places needing subsequent manual intervention,
and/or having the list of directories containing shared objects in
unlikely places. It would be useful to have input from Ubuntu/Debian users
showing how they have succeeded, I do not have access to such systems (and
in any case prefer to install these kinds of applications from source).
Please also consider using the STATGRASS list, and reviewing its archives
