in the directory src.related/LTPlus/source there is a Makefile where you
define the base directory for LTplus 

Makefile>   LTP_BASE_DIR  = /cd2/grass4.1/hp730.x/ltp
Makefile>#  directory where ltplus and ltpgo  executables will go
Makefile>   LTP_BIN_DIR  = ${LTP_BASE_DIR}/bin

you need to copy the following directories that are found under 

./             bin/           digitizers/    import/        maps/
../            config/        digmenus/      incl/          menus/
               cursor_keys/   export/                       pens/
               dictionaries/  help/          macros/
               dictionary/    ibm/           map_lists/

what i did is to link back to the orginal src.related/LTPplus directories
so that i did not have extra copies of files.

/cd2/grass4.1/hp730.x/ltp> ln -s /cd2/grass4.1/src.related/LTPlus/config config
