We had the same desire - to export GISBASE read-only.  You can make a
symbolic link from locks to somewhere else, and then instruct your
mounters to create that directory mode 777 (if you're not exporting
that directory).  For example, on our systems $GISBASE/locks is
a symlink to /grass/locks.

FYI, $GISBASE/dev is a symlink to /grass/dev, and monitorcap knows
the fifo's under that pathname, so if the exported file system is
mounted at a different mountpoint everything's still happy.  Note that
under Ultrix, fifo's can't be NFS-mounted anyway.
