[GRASS5] Problem compiling Grass51

Hello Bob
I found a mistake in the Makefile where $(PROJ_INC) should have been
$(PROJINC) but that isn't your problem. If $(GPROJDEP) is removed from the
dependency list it is all right. Seems the problem is related to an
earlier e-mail this morning
I don't think $(GPROJDEP) should be defined as GPROJDEP    =  $(GPROJLIB)
in grass51/include/Make/Grass.make.in since
So when there is anything in $(PROJLIB) this won't work as a dependency rule
in the Makefile.
But this is also done for $(GISDEP) where
so if $(SOCKLIB) or $(INTLLIB) where defined as anything, presumably this
wouldn't work either.

I fixed it by sort of swapping round the definitions of $(GPROJLIB) and
$(GPROJDEP); probably this file needs to be re-arranged:
first and then
further down in the file. grass/src/CMD/generic/make.mid gives a clue as
to how this should be done properly.

BTW I still can't compile d.where as there is a vsnprintf() somewhere in
libgrass_gis.a according to the error message. I don't use GRASS 5.1 as it
is full of Linux-isms etc. and I can never get it to compile properly on the
Irix system I use most of them (GRASS 5.0 was like this also a year or two
ago but it is much tidier now).
