Same problem here on Mandriva: due to a change some days ago the wxGUI is
gone - I only get the old map and then it silently disappears.


checking for MacOSX App... no
checking for MacOSX architectures...
checking for MacOSX SDK... checking for /SDKSettings.plist... no
configure: error: *** specified SDK does not exist or is not a SDK

I can even no longer configure GRASS :( The SDK test needs apparently
to be conditionalized: if on Linux/nonMac please don't test MacOSX SDK.
