My apologies if I have responded to this request earlier. But a quick
check of the archives does not turn my response up so I will repost.

My configure command was fairly straight forward:

I left the directory structure as the defaults. Therefor Grass got
installed into /usr/local
truffula:/usr/local/grass5 kirkw$ ls
bin documents fonts locale scripts
bwidget driver include locks
dev etc lib man txt

As you can see in the configure script, I installed everything from
fink with the exception of gdal (here I used 1.1.9 and configured with
the switch --without-python... which I saw as a recommendation in the
archives... from Hamish, I think), and grass (which for I used the new
stable 5.0.3, configured with the above switches).
The only trouble I had was getting postresql installed with fink. And
once I realized that I needed to be installing all of its dependencies
from the same unstable tree, that went smoothly as well. Here is what I
copied into my local/main/finkinfo directory:
truffula:/sw/fink/dists/local/main/finkinfo kirkw$ ls
