I don't really see this as being much different than just mounting a
directory (we run the same binaries on a few dozen machines).
Things to look out for:
1. be sure that we're talking about exactly the same OS (shared library
2. for changed paths, check:
grass4.1 and gmake4.1 scripts
the default database path
3. depending upon how it is copied, you may want to re-create named pipes
have I forgotten anything?
