[GRASS-dev] RC5 on Mac OS X

The wxpython you compile GRASS with, if you spell out a custom path  
for it in configuration, may not be the wxpython that is found when  
GRASS runs, depending on which Python is found at runtime.

Are you using a wxpython binary install or your own compiled version?   
I have not seen libwx_base_* as a normal OSX prefix for wx libraries,  
they're usually libwx_macud_*.

You could try forcing the Python you want by setting GRASS_PYTHON in  
your shell init, or in grass.sh.
