you need to use these parameters of configure:
  --with-proj-libs=DIRS   External PROJ.4 library files are in DIRS
  --with-proj-share=DIR   External PROJ.4 data files are in DIR

to indicate the directories.

Hint: I personally don't even install GRASS but run it from the
directory where I compiled. The start script is in bin.$ARCH, e.g.

Hope this helps
