Compile problem from a beginner.

Everything you want to compile under the standard GRASS distribution
that's contained in the lists/GRASS lists/local file must be
un-commented, i.e., delete the '#' symbol. The programs in the contrib/
garden/, etc. directories must be complied separately using the gmake4.1
command in each of those directories, but ONLY after successful
compilation of the the core GRASS programs.

Also, the programm has a bug; so be sure to get the updated
code for build.vector.c. For details on this, look at the FAQs for
