Hi Andy,

-lm is the mathematical library. Maybe it is not used on MAC.
and change
MATHLIB             = -lm
MATHLIB             =

If you have the current CVS version of GRASS 5 the head filename is for you

Then it should compile.

This one:

r.fill.dir requires a fortran compiler (g77 or f77), otherwise it
won't compile.

There must have been the -lm error here, too. Please recompile.
In GRASS 5 beta8 you will have to remove the file in

then run 
make install

Which error? Perhaps I can help...



PS: Jeshua managed to compile GRASS this morning on his Mac,. You will manage,
