gmake5 and gmakelinks5 are of no use without the source code; there is
little point in including them in a binary distribution.

Yes, but probably not relevant; see above.

1. You need to change the value of GISBASE in the grass5 script.
2. gmake5/gmakelinks5 won't work correctly; they will use the original
paths which are embedded into Makefile and src/CMD/head/head.<arch> by
the configure script. But, again, probably not relevant; see above.
