I'm getting the errors on the binaries I downloaded from 
So I'm running
GRASS.app 6.4 RC3 (Leopard)

I also downloaded and installed 
ActiveTcl 8.5 from ActiveState as recommended on the site

X11 wise I'm running Xquartz 2.4.0 - could this be the problem?

I needed to upgrade this for one of the RGDAL builds as I recall....

I also tried building GRASS 6.5 as one list member says his works, but that
didn't work either.
