 Many Makefiles now accept an additional variable called DESTROOT that
 specifies a kind of root install location, considering all other paths
 relative to this root. This is used by Macports to install applications in
 special locations, while using soft links to make the files visible in the
 standard directories.

 This appear to be not supported by the install Makefile of Grass. If I use
 a modified prefix, I get a normal file behaviour, but because of the
 -install_name flag in the include/Make/Plateform file, all the libraries
 and their dependencies are wrong (as well as the file that are linked
 against them, like etc/lock). Could it be possible before 6.4.0 release to
 enhance the Makefile in order to support this type of installation?
