Thanks - that looks exactly what I am looking for.
But is there a way of specifying a certain .grass.bashrc which should be used?

The reasoning is that for certain projects I need R and emacs and
would like to start them automatically, for others not. Obviously, I
could use a startup script which renames the apropriate file to
.grass.bashrc, but it would be cleaner to be able to specify it when
starting grass.
