$(RELDIR) is simply the current directory relative to the root of the
GRASS source tree.

I have no plans to use in the Makefiles. I added it mainly so that the
user can use e.g.


to place all[1] intermediate files in a single directory (which
doesn't have to be within the GRASS source tree) rather than scattered
throughout the source directory. This may be desirable for multiple
builds for a single $(ARCH) or for performing builds from a read-only
source tree.

[1] Currently, the files generated by lex/yacc are placed in the
source directory rather than in $(OBJDIR).

No relation.

That refers to automake, which we don't use.
