I see, that makes sense.
Should _grass6_wxvdigit.so and _grass6_wxnviz.so be linked to
libwx_mac? Because they are not, and that is where the symbol that
_grass6_wxvdigit is failing to find lives.

Odd - I don't have that file in my source or in /Library:
find /usr/src/wxPython-src-188.8.131.52/ -name "*wxredirect*"
find /Library -name "*wxredirect*"
Both returns nothing.

I did not know that wxpython was included with Mac OS X, thanks.

I will try both of these suggestions now...
