Well, I'm in favor of these logical subsystems being isolated
and appropriate options created for each.  The current situation
is that the gdal-grass driver configure script has a hardcoded set
of libraries which is almost certain to be wrong each time GRASS

Most of those are already pulled in as dependencies of other libraries,
and would not need to be listed on a link line.  Currently my configure

     G_VECTLIBS="-lgrass_vect -lgrass_dig2 -lgrass_dgl -lgrass_rtree 
-lgrass_linkm -lgrass_dbmiclient -lgrass_dbmibase"
     LIBS="-L$with_grass/lib $G_VECTLIBS $G_RASTLIBS -lgrass_gproj 
-lgrass_vask -lgrass_gmath -lgrass_gis -lgrass_datetime $LIBS"

As you can imagine, this is pretty fragile.
