That shouldn't be necessary. The script just needs execute permission,
which can be set by the script's owner.

On a single-user system, there isn't any particular need to even
install GRASS. You can either just run bin.<arch>/grass64 directly, or
manually install it into e.g. /usr/local/bin if you want to avoid
having to type the full path.

The latest "installed" copy of GRASS on my machine is dated
Jun 13 2009. That was probably only done to check that "make install"
still worked.
