This file isn't used for anything unless you select to browse EPSG codes 
(which simply displays this file). So should make no difference even if it 
isn't there.

Does the start-up GUI hide error messages? Can you try it from the 
command-line and post what you type and what happens? Try something like:
g.proj -c location=newloc proj4=+init=epsg:XXXX
