I've submitted GRASS_0.2-2 to CRAN, thanks for your help. One problem that 
I hit is that strlen() in G_store() usually crashes (MinGW and gcc RH 
2.96) when passed a NULL string - a test might be an idea anyway in 
libes/gis/store.c. I've put a full list of diffs, the source package, and 
a Windows binary build on http://spatial.nhh.no/R/GRASS/index.html

The only additional functions are in libes/gis/env.c, to get and set the 
init flag in open_env(). Beyond that, I've used the logic of Frank 
Warmerdam's gisinit2, and make_loc from libgrass to create a temporary 
GISDBASE to run examples in.
