General answer for such questions is that I wanted to improve a bit 
how vectors are stored and manipulated in GRASS. 
It is not my ambition to rewrite whole GRASS, first I hoped that 
5.1 will be joint work.

I used head.in from 5.0 as template for Platform.make.in and there 
it was hardcoded. I think, that if something is obviously wrong, 
anybody can fix it.

and ALLINC is used in default rules. This is probably wrong,
we can remove $(PNGINC) and use EXTRA_INCL in modules,
but what to do with ODBCINC and PQINCPATH? Those must be used 
in all vector libraries and modules. Is it necessary to define something 
like EXTRA_INCL = $(VECT_INCL) in all vector modules or it is not harmful
in default rules (ALLINC).
