[GRASS5] 5.3: shared libs and test in configure

Here an example that the test

  if test "$SRCDIR" = "$DSTDIR" ; then
    { echo "configure: error: ***  Build directory should not be the same as source \

can fail:

SRCDIR: /hardmnt/thuille1/ssi/cvsgrass_exp
DSTDIR: /ssi0/ssi/neteler/cvsgrass_exp

The situation is that I have changed into the source code
/ssi0/ssi/neteler/cvsgrass_exp/ directory via soft-link:

cd /ssi0/ssi/neteler/cvsgrass_exp/

thuille:cvsgrass_exp[304.48] pwd

thuille:cvsgrass_exp[305.49] /bin/pwd

Personally I enjoy that it fails as I can launch 'make' as
usual :-)
