I should mention that there is a possibility you can only get the ECW SDK
to work with gdal in MS Windows (??). In that case either a) try to run
GRASS with a ecw-enabled gdal in Windows, or b) use gdal_translate in
Windows to make a GeoTiff from the ECW data, and then transport the
GeoTiff back to Linux/Mac/whatever..

check for ECW support with "gdalinfo --formats"
