No. They're different, but the .a are not required. gstat 2.4.4
links to grass-6.0.0beta1, which contains only .so in the lib dir;
I tried the 2.4.3 (targeted at grass 5.x) and the configure
worked on the grass6 machine, it finds the .so libraries. Then it
doesn't compile, for obvious reasons.
Thomas, could you double-check the directory names?
I need to set up grass 5.4 here in order to check it out.
