[GRASS5] LD_LIBRARY_PATH and display support on solaris 8

I also had glitches starting the pre-02 version on Solaris 8.  Init.sh choked.

I had to change Init.sh to

# Set LD_LIBRARY_PATH.  For GRASS 5.0 we don't depend on this much, though
# r.in.gdal may use it to find some things.  Over time we intend to put
# more GRASS related shared libraries in $GISBASE/lib.
if [ ! "$LD_LIBRARY_PATH" ] ; then

so that $ETC/set_data could find the zlib shared library.

The key is that if   --with-zlib-libs=DIR is specified to 
"configure", then that directory has to end up in the 
LD_LIBRARY_PATH.  I don't know where in the build tree that change 
should be made, however.

I also ran into the problem of the display/d.mon stuff getting built 
with inconsistent references to sockets and fifos.  Specified 
--with-fifo and everything worked fine.  As someone else had noted, 
the compile goes fine without saying --with-fifo; it's only at 
runtime that the problem arises.
