There is an experimental module v.label.sa, available in the svn. It is 
ready but I'm still waiting on word for patches to ps.map and d.label 
from Hamish. v.label.sa uses a simulated annealing method of finding an 
optimal label placement.
It supports point and line features. I'm working on adding support for areas

It is not built by default, but if you want to give it a try I'll gladly 
help more.
