Comment(by cmbarton):

 OK. This seems to be some kind of OS X 10.7 (AKA Lion) issue. It does work
 fine on my OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) machine it was compiled on, but gives
 the following error on my Lion laptop.

 Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "/Applications/GRASS/GRASS-7.0.app/Contents/MacOS/etc
 /python/wx/lib/filebrowsebutton.py", line 140, in OnChanged

   File "/Applications/GRASS/GRASS-7.0.app/Contents/MacOS/etc

   File "/Applications/GRASS/GRASS-7.0.app/Contents/MacOS/etc

 return string.decode(enc)
   File "/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions

 return codecs.utf_8_decode(input, errors, True)
 'utf8' codec can't decode byte 0xc1 in position 77: invalid

 What is the function of "Decodestring" in this context? Is it necessary?

 I'll try building under Lion to see if this goes away.
