[GRASS5] A comment and a question.

It took a few days, but Hal Mueller convinced me that it probably is a
good idea for a "production" installation of GRASS 5.0 for the installed
files to be owned by root.  That wasn't necessarily true for the beta
and pre-release versions, and we're certainly not talking about the
GRASSS database.  For a stable system the installation scripts should
probably have an option to make root the owner of the installed files,
as are (for instance) the program files in a Postgres installation. 
Last week Hal provided the list with some specific suggestions about how
that might be done.

As to the question...  I seem to recall that my first GRASS 5
installation included an s.surf.krige program, but it isn't there in
either of my current installations.  Is my memory completely messed up,
or was it removed?  I searched the archives and found a couple letters
that mentioned kriging, but no explanation for what happened to the old
program.  What happened to the old one, and are there any plans to
replace it?
