[GRASS-dev] Gaining write privileges to usr/local and subdirectories

I started off trying to build it in a directory under my home directory
using the instructions here
but I could not get it to build.  The only part of those instructions that
I was not following were the path.  So I started using the paths indicated
in those instructions and then it would build.  That is why my copy of the
source is where it is.

Based on yall's comments, I now think it was something other than the path
where I was storing the source code, but I have no idea what.
