Now that is really interesting. Running 'gdalinfo --formats' produces a
list that does not include MrSid, which explains why grass did not want to
import the .sid file. Time to recompile gdal.

  I had an old version of gdal installed and just upgraded that to version
2.1.1; still no MrSid support. In the gdal wiki I found this information:

"MrSID driver needs LizardTech decoding software development kit (DSDK). It
is not free software, but you can download it without charge at
https://www.lizardtech.com/developer/ (you will have to register first). To
enable file creation capability you need encoding SDK (ESDK). You should
contact LizardTech to obtain it."

  For a single DRG it's not worth the hassle.
