it should happen automatically, if there and you are creating a new location based on the data file.

try looking at what projection info is shown by:

  gdalinfo filename.tif

if GRASS doesn't know what projection your data is in (ie your location projection settings happen to be broken), it won't be able to reproject it to something else. maybe g.setproj helps to reset it to something known?
