Comment(by kyngchaos):

 Hmmm, there is one oddity here.  letting it use the default prefix
 $GRASS_ADDON_PATH, which is the user ~/Library/GRASS/6.4/Modules/bin, the
 docs get put in the bin folder, ie ..../bin/docs/*

 But if I manually set the prefix=~/Library/GRASS/6.4/Modules, it correctly
 puts both the executable in Modules/bin and the docs in Modules/docs.  So
 if g.extension doesn't see a true prefix path, and it is a "bin" folder,
 maybe it should drop back one folder and check again?

 And I just tried a script extension - it installs in Modules/scripts
 (manually set prefix).  I don't have scripts in the Mac GRASS_ADDONS_PATH,
 and the Mac user menu building script doesn't check scripts to build the
 GUI addons menu.  More updates needed, stay tuned...

 P.S.  I tested g.extension from the Terminal, not from the GUI.
