You should only configure gdal with --with-grass if you need GDAL to be
able to export GRASS maps without GRASS being installed. It is not
needed, and can cause r.in.gdal to break if it is used. Leave it off.
[this may be out of date/fixed now, but is how things used to be]
Was grass57 built with --with-gdal=/usr/local/bin/gdal-config or the like?
Did the 5.7 ./configure summary say it will use GDAL?
can you cd raster/r.in.gdal and run make?
