I had a similar problem and got a bug fix from Randy Hills which worked fine:
   (From rhills at (Randy Hills)):
   The following is a bug fix for xgrass in that I've had to apply
   in the RS6000 environment in order to get text strings in menus to be
   readable.  My feeling is the fix is applicable to other environments, the
   ifdef was put there to retain the original code.  The following is a diff of
   the old and new routines:
   %  diff
   > #ifdef _AIX
   >                     static char retBuf[256];
   > #else
   > #endif
