Just to let you know, you shouldn't need to edit the grass5install.sh
script. The destination and binary directories can be specified on the
command line. Below I include the usage message for grass5install.sh

Usage: sh grass5install.sh grass_binpackage.tar.gz [dest_dir] [bin_dir]

    grass_binpackage : name of GRASS 5 binary package   
    [dest_dir] - optional: FULL path name to the installation directory
            (default: /usr/local/grass5/)
    [bin_dir] - optional: FULL path name to the grass binary directory
            (default: /usr/local/bin/)
            Notes: 1) Only the grass executable file is stored here
                   2) If you want to change the binary directory only
                      then you need to specify the destination
                      directory as well

You may need login as root for installation.

Hope this is helpful on your next installation.
