I meant "generic" as in something which actually works on any
Linux/x86 system, rather than something which is merely advertised as
doing so.

If you download the "generic" version from the GRASS website, and run
it on a Linux/x86 system which is substantially different from the one
on which it was compiled, some components (especially NVIZ) may not
work correctly (or at all).
