It's purpose is to have all info about compiling GRASS on OS X - there is a lot needed on OS X that is not covered by a simple Linux configure-compile.

I haven't updated it in a while because it all still mostly applies, and I've been too lazy to make minor changes for new systems (and my interest is waning).  Also, it should probably be moved to the wiki page for compiling on OS X - easier for others to update and add custsom build info.
