When using Kang's 4.1.5 ELF Binaries I had to install the Curses Library
seperately, due to it NOT being included with the recent C Libraries (it
used to be).  Without the Curses Library I get the following message: 

     /usr/extra/grass4.1/etc/gis_set: can't load library ''

Where it is also "gis_set" which is complaining, but a slightly different
message!  NOTE: "__waddbytes" is defined in the Curses Library V1.0?
