Package: grass
Version: 6.4.0~rc5-1
Severity: serious

Although grass installed without any errors in my system below, links to
libraries in the binaries are not found for most binaries under
/usr/lib/grass64/bin.  Here's the first few lines:

$ ldd /usr/lib/grass64/bin/* | head
/usr/lib/grass64/bin/d.ask: =>  (0x00007ffff73ff000) => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f82eee63000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f82eebdc000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007f82ee9b7000)

This happens for a total of 1954 occurrences of "not found".  I'm
reporting this as "serious", because most of the binaries are affected,
so most programs are reporting errors.

This is not an error, is a feature. Grass does no more pollute with 
his own ld paths. You have to use grass commands within the grass environment,
which is the most reasonable thing to do anyway, because most commands cannot
work without a defined location/mapset/window etc.
