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.
