[GRASS-user] Getting vectors from postscript files

I have a large and layered PDF map which I'd like to get into Grass-GIS, 
preferably without tracing the vectors by hand - there are hundreds!

I've been looking at various ways to extract the vectors - in particular 
using tools like pdf2ps, pstoedit and fig2dev - to try and get the data 
into some kind of usable format. However, the best I can seem to do is 
to get an SVG (scalable vector graphics) file that contains the relevant 

Is there a tool that will let me import vectors from either PDF, PS, or 
SVG into Grass-GIS?
