GRASS on Macintosh

Hi Les,

The latest version of Grass (5beta3) compiled without a hitch for me on
LinuxPPC on a power mac.  I'm using all the tools that are provided with
LinuxPPC, so a standard installation of the operating system should provide
everything you need (just make sure you install the development tools).  I
could get you a copy of my compiled binaries, but it might be easier for you
to compile from source in case your system requires different configuration
settings (the source code includes a script that checks how your system is
configured and adjusts the compilation accordingly).
