I don't see how d.where could compile anywhere the way it currently is (I
presume Bob is using Linux as well?) As I understand it the dependency has
to be an actual file or list of files that make can check to see when they
were last modified. The dependencies follow a colon on the makefile. And
underneath that are instructions for compiling the output program.

Before fixing it we have to know why it is done like that, with the full
pathname of the static library. Why not do it like GPROJLIB = -lproj,
GISLIB = -lgis etc. in GRASS 5.0. Neater looking and makes it possible to
use shared libraries.

I think we need a G_snprintf() and G_vsnprintf() or something like that.
Would it be all right just to copy the code straight from a 3rd party snprintf
implementation to enable this?

I will make a start (see below). It can be an occasional series...
