Hi there,

it's a known problem we are actively working on. right now it
only really works well if you build GRASS from source yourself.

the main thing is that paths in 
need to be edited to refer to the final install directory, not
the temporary packaging directory on the build server.

I am undecided if the fix belongs in upstream packaging rules
(cc debiangis) or in upstream 'make install' (grass-dev).

another issue is that plugins should be installed to /usr/local/
or ~/grass_addons, ~/.grass/addons/ (or some user-writable dir;
on a multi-user system the end-user may not have sudo rights
but still would like some addons). Typically this also means
setting $GRASS_ADDON_PATH in your ~/.bashrc.

the R-statistics CRAN addons can perhaps give some guidance here?
