Hi Jeshua,

GRASS 5 MacOS binaries are "wanted". If you will build them,
we might be able to assist in case of problems.

I suggest me switch to grass5 developers list:

or to personal communication for details. I highly recommend
you use the CVS-version for compiling as platform independence
has been improved again:

The reprojection of your data should be possible with
GRASS (r.proj, v.proj, s.proj).

Kind regards
