... here is the problem.       ^^^^^

Recently we have updated the Makefile system to generate platform
specific file. Means: Formerly one head.file was generated.
Now you get a head file name depending on the computer platform
e.g. src/CMD/head/head.i686-pc-linux-gnu

After you have run
cvs update -dP
I guess you did not run

again. If you do, the problem should be fixed as the new head-file
will be generated. Sorry for this inconvenience, but now you
can compile GRASS in a network of different platform types from
the same source code tree.

In case of "configure" does not fix your problem, please let
me know.

Kind regards
