Thanks for the suggestions.  I've checked that permissions are fine, and
also diff'ed one of the locations with the problem in the new system
against the backup, and did the same for the backup against the
original, and no differences show up.  Permissions and file naming are
also fine (my user has read/write access, with read access to others, as
was the case in my previous system).  However, I went ahead and heeded
the advice in the message (run g.region), which gave this error:

g.region: error while loading shared libraries: libgrass_vect.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


,-----[ ldd /usr/lib/grass64/bin/g.region | grep 'not found' ]

In fact, doing this for /usr/lib/grass64/bin/* gives a pretty long list
(1954).  Could this be the problem?
