[GRASS-dev] makefile for Mac still not compiling wxpython GUI

Thanks Markus and William,
I think that 2 different things are happening.
1. Something is now causing wxpython NOT to compile automatically--perhaps in the wxpython makefile, perhaps something else.
2. Glynn is changing /lib/python and THAT is why this won't compile in GRASS 7. For this one, do I need just need to build ctypesgen?
