Note that the demolocation is first installed into dist.$ARCH,
then this one is used (not the one of the source code).
So: in case dist.$ARCH is not writable, the compilation won't
work at all.
grep GISRC ~/grass57/include/Make/Rules.make
I feel that the above mentioned potential problem with
G__mapset_permissions() doesn't exist (maybe I am wrong).
