You have an old patch that worked in an old 6.1.cvs.
Please download the patch for 6.0.0:

 From README file.

GRASS 6.0.0 PATCH FOR MAC OS X 10.4.x (updated)

This patch is only for Grass 6.0.0 and it works in any operating 
system: 10.2.x, 10.3.x and 10.4.x.
Unzip the folder and you have 2 files: this "README" file and 
"script.scpt" file.

- exit from Grass and X11 application;
- go to your Grass folder, usually /Applications/Grass folder and 
open your grass60.app application;
- select grass60 icon, press ctrl key and a clic on mouse and you see 
the menu where you select "Show Package Contents";
- go to "grass60.app/Contents/Resources/Scripts" folder;
- inside you see 1 file with the name "script.scpt";
- substitute this file with the new file with the same name 
"script.scpt" inside "grass60-patch-OSX-10.4" folder;
- done

Run now grass60 and press START button to start.

Remember: last 6.1.cvs 
(http://wwwamb.bologna.enea.it/forgrass/downloadcvs.htm) it's already 
Tiger compatible: no patch is need.
You can use last Grass 6.1.cvs because it has many new features: it 
requires the presence of grass60.app in /Applications/Grass folder.

If you use old Grass 5.4.0 you can apply the patch for Tiger:
