A couple of brief comments regarding dependencies:

1. PROJ isn't an optional dependendency. Although the --with-proj
switch remains, its setting is ignored. If you don't have PROJ,
configure will fail.

2. There is no point having separate Tcl and Tk dependencies. If you
use --with-tcltk, you need both, so there's no point having a separate
"tcl" USE flag.

3. It's debatable whether ncurses is really an optional dependency. 
The --without-curses flag is only useful if you're willing to accept a
significantly cut-down version of GRASS. Also, note that using this
flag will cause the build to fail, in the sense that it will return a
non-zero exit status (the build system doesn't attempt to
conditionalise the components which require curses).

4. The x11-terms/mlterm dependency for NLS is unnecessary. The NLS
support just allows the use of message catalogues via gettext. If
you're in an ISO-8859-1 locale, GRASS' NLS will work fine with the
standard xterm.
