What OS are you on? It looks to me like it uses 
<temp>/grass6-<user>-<pid> so on my linux box it's under /tmp/grass6-...

So you can edit to change the $tmp variable

Or you can use the example you see there to issue some bash commands 
once Grass is open (not sure if this works) -
GISRC = /path/you/want
export GISRC
Or you might need to specify it as a commandline option on Grass Launch
see man grass

Here's where I got the hint
