[GRASS-user] No elevation in dxf polylines

A while back I received a dxf file that contained contour elevation lines. The problem is that when I imported it, the polylines all showed up at elevation 0, instead of at their correct elevation.
At the time, I had several discussions about this, but never figured out a solution. Then, a year and a half ago, I saw a similar problem crop up on this list, along with a final outcome that it had been fixed, but no other details about that.
I just received a new elevation contour dxf file, from a different source, and sure enough, I am having the same problem with it. It seems to import fine, but the polylines all show as elevation 0.
I tried to import both with v.in.dxf and with v.in.ogr. In the second case, I also tried -z.
I am on a Mac using Kyngesburye's GRASS-6.4.0-3-Snow.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
