Sorry, I can't help you: I never used qgis with support to grass since 
former versions (compatible with Slackware 14.2+) due many problems with 
qgis against QScintilla and PyQt5 with Qt5 installed via slackbuild. I 
solved these issues only when Pat included in qt5 in current (14.2+). I 
used qgis mainly to open a map in ECW format and I don't need Grass for 
this (support to ECW formats is given by gdal).

The mantainer is now KB_SBo. Please wait him, surely he's more expert 
than me :-)
