(that also includes 6.4.3-final by the way)

it still works at run time. you can make it locally permanent on a
single user setup with:
echo "export GRASS_SKIP_MAPSET_OWNER_CHECK=true" >> ~/.grass.bashrc
As with anything else, be sure to extra take care when disabling
ps- the build-time compiler flag version is "-DSKIP_MAPSET_OWN_CHK"
