If you will install grass5 bin for linux, the fifos will not be
created if you chose not /usr/local/grass-5.0b as target directory

The bug is at line 115 of grass5install.sh which should read

sed 's*/usr/local/grass-5.0b*'${NEWPATH}'*g' $2/dev/create_fifos.sh

instead of

sed 's*/usr/local/grass5*'${NEWPATH}'*g' $2/dev/create_fifos.sh

(wrong name of the default directory for fifos in $GISBASE/dev)
