Thanks again. Here is some info and a question. I hope that this helps
with the configure script (as well as helping me compile grass).

Here is the relevant section of config.log. It seems OK, but there may
be something I am missing.
-L/usr/lib conftest.c -lfftw 1>&5
configure:7925: checking whether to use BLAS
configure:8078: checking whether to use LAPACK
configure:8231: checking whether to use Motif
configure:8399: checking whether to use FreeType
configure:8418: checking for location of FreeType includes
configure:8444: checking for ft2build.h
configure:8452: cc -E -traditional-cpp -I/sw/include -I/usr/include
-I/sw/include conftest.c >/dev/null 2>conftest.out
In file included from configure:8448:
/sw/include/ft2build.h:55: freetype/config/ftheader.h: No such file or
configure: failed program was:
#line 8447 "configure"
Here is the error message.
checking whether to use Motif... no
checking whether to use FreeType... yes
checking for location of FreeType includes... /sw/include
checking for ft2build.h... no
configure: error: *** Unable to locate FreeType includes.
Finally, it may not help, but here is the configure command string I am
sudo ./configure --prefix=/sw/grass5 --with-includes="/sw/include
/usr/include" --with-libs="/sw/lib /usr/lib" --with-gdal=/sw/lib
--without-postgres --without-blas --without-lapack --without-motif

So I should just ./configure with all turned off -- including freetype?

I had to use the precompiled binary of gdal for OSX. It only comes with
a dynamic library (libgdal.1.1.dylib). No gdal-config. Should I let the
configure script default to without gdal?
