that is fine, just to note that the bin/ and script/ dirs
were created there due to the crash of the extension manager
GUI, usually they are removed after install of the executable
to ~/.grass6/addons/. but it's all ok, if you manually set
GRASS_ADDON_PATH grass will respect whatever you choose to do.
it can also be multiple paths if you like, separated by ":".

GRASS_ADDON_PATH needs to be set before the grass startup script
runs, so the menu misses that, setting it in the terminal only
affects the terminal itself and things launched from it. I set
my GRASS_ADDON_PATH in ~/.bashrc so it's always available.
