Well, it looks like your raster image does not have projection information
in the metadata. If you are sure that the image is referenced to a latlong
grid on WGS84, then use the -o flag as proposed by r.in.gdal.

In the r.in.gdal dialog click on 'Options' and select 'override projection
(use location's projection)'. That will do.

Hope this helps
