I don't see a real need for a version string. The contents of the file
are only environment variables and Grass doesn't assume the existance of
the file, so it doesn't matter if the variables exist or not. Therefore,
a version string is not necessary.

If we ever do decide to put something into grassrc other than
environment variables, then we would need a version string.
