[GRASS5] Windows port continues

Hi Radim,
I tried the commandline version.
Your description for environment setting didn't work for me:
         set PATH=C:\grass\bin;C:\grass\lib;%PATH%
         set GISRC=C:\gdata\spearfish\user1\gisrc
         set GISBASE=C:\grass

But it does with:
set GISRC=C:\wherever\gisrc
set GISBASE=C:\grass\
set GRASS_LD_LIBRARY_PATH=C:\grass\bin
set LD_LIBRARY_PATH=C:\grass\bin
set PATH=%PATH%;C:\grass\bin\

But when I try to run a command with vector implications, like for example 
r.contour, I get problems:

No such file or directory: Cannot open drivers directory
WARNING: Cannot open driver 'dbf'
ERROR: Cannot open database $GISDBASE/$LOCATION_NAME/$MAPSET/dbf/ by driver

The debug tells me that it searches driver/dbf inside of c:\grass instead of 

Solved that by moving "driver" up one folder, dbf.exe says it can't find 
grass_gis.dll, which is in every path, therefore I can't figure out what the 
problem is.

Any idea?
