v.kernel is the way to go, however its output will depend on a couple things:

1. region settings
2. the size of the kernel (in terms of standard deviation)
3. obviously, the point density

tinker around with those, starting with the region settings (e.g. the 
resolution), then tinker with the standard deviation (in map units) option.
