Thanks for the clarification on that.  When I poked around in  
configure to see how it checked for X11, I saw the list of dirs and  
thought it just tested for the existence of certain files.  Instead  
it's actually trying to run something.

I don't know enough about X to say if something is getting messed up  
with OSX's X11 setup.  But it sounds like it's not a direct GRASS  
problem.  I'll add a note about that to the OSX readme configure

All generalizations are dangerous, even this one.
