It seems from that bug report that you are building against grass trunk?
Please use the latest stable version (currently 6.4.1 soon to be 6.4.2)
for building the QGIS--GRASS plugin. Trunk is in active development
and will change all the time, without warning, guaranteed. The stable
branch will hopefully remain stable/backwards compatible for a long long
time, specifically so things like the qgis plugin will continue to work
with a minimum about of maintenance.

completely agree.
 - would a dedicated inter-project qgis-grass-plugin osgeo ML help?
 - what are the biggest issues with it to work on right now?
