[GRASS-dev] 6.4.2rc3 this week, then 6.4.2 by the holidays?

AFAICT the only reason to do a 6.4.2rc3 is to test
the latest changes to init.sh and g.extension.sh
which are in devbr6 right now. So I would propose to
backport those to relbr64 as soon as I get some
independent verification that it works for $you in
6.5svn*, release a quick 6.4.2rc3 by the end of the
week, and then hopefully we can send 6.4.2-final
out the door before the end-of-year holidays.

changes are--

* init.sh: if GRASS_ADDON_PATH is not set, then
   set it to ~/.grass6/addons

* g.extension(.sh): 
  * url= option
-#% answer: https://svn.osgeo.org/grass/grass-addons
+#% answer: http://svn.osgeo.org/grass/grass-addons
 (..does it matter?)

  * if the path given for the prefix= option doesn't
    exist (e.g. ~/.grass6/addons), then create it
    instead of exiting with an error.

  * fix symlink test for default install dir in
    case the hardcoded default destination is used.

[*] actually since I now notice that 6.4.2rc2
shipped with the broken g.extension install bug,
I've backported them just now in r49320. fwiw this
would have been done for rc2 but it went out the
door before I got the warning that its release was

please test (relbr64),
