With my limited grasp of the grass internals and wxpython:

The main issue For El Capitan is the use of DYNLD_LIBRARY_PATH when
running binaries in /usr/bin or /bin directories (e.g. make). In the
case of homebrew (presumibly Macports as well), during compilation (I
can turn of SIP (System Integrity Progtection) on El Capitan, compile and
install, and enable it again, and it works) and in the case of the
binary compilation and running (as GRASS uses the shell which is in /usr/local/bin).
