yes, but r.in.gdal and v.in.ogr have options to automatically create new
locations for you from the geodata file, so it isn't so much work as it
seems. after that use r.proj or v.proj to pull data into your location
containing the target projection.

another way is to use GDAL/OGR tools to reproject the data before loading
into GRASS. I wouldn't say that is either better or worse, depends on your
data and your needs.
