	g.region -a res=0.25 rast=map1,map2,map3,map4

This will enlarge the bounds slightly in order to avoid having to
adjust the resolution.

You are probably better off just setting the target location's region
to whatever is convenient, and omitting the resolution= option to

If you want more control over the resampling, at the expense of
increased processing time, you can use a significantly finer
resolution for the output then resample manually with e.g. 
r.resamp.interp, r.resamp.stats or r.resamp.rst, possibly after
filtering with r.mfilter[.fp].
