Hi, I just tested, it's still a bug in 6.4.3svn and devbr6.

filed as  https://trac.osgeo.org/grass/ticket/1971

It does import ok in GRASS 7; the r.in.bin module is essentially
the same, the difference is that GRASS 6's G_ftell() function returns
plain integer instead of off_t, and GRASS 7 defines 
so the PRI_OFF_T test in gis.h gets set to "lld", but GRASS 6 doesn't
so the error message format gets set to "ld".

partly I'm just fishing for testers :), I hope we can commit a fix
for this very soon, but for now you could always build the GRASS 7
development code, import the raster map, and then fall back to the
stable version to work with it.

thanks for reporting it,
