Configure 5.0.3 with:
CFLAGS="-O3 -march=i686 -Wall" LDFLAGS="-s" ./configure \
        --with-tcltk-includes=/usr/include/tcl8.3 \
        --with-postgres-includes=/usr/include/postgresql \

        --with-glw --with-readline --with-gdal \
        2>&1 | tee config_log.txt

GRASS 5.7:
get latest CVS version of GRASS 5.3  (to /usr/src/grass/grass53)
get latest CVS version of GRASS 5.7  (to /usr/src/grass/grass57)

Then use:
./configure \
    --with-grass50=/usr/src/grass/grass53 \
    --with-tcltk-includes=/usr/include/tcl8.3 \
    --with-postgres-includes=/usr/include/postgresql \

    --with-readline --with-gdal --with-cxx --with-glw \

To run GRASS 5.7, simply start
