Normally, extra tools are expected to be in the user's shell PATH.   
Since the frameworks have a separate bin path for each one, they  
won't be found in the common /usr/local/bin, and many Mac users may  
not think to add them.

I took care of this in the Mac startup for GDAL, since I knew that  
GDAL was used in a GRASS module, but I wasn't aware that m.proj used  
PROJ tools.  I can fix that for future builds.  For now, type this in  

export PATH="/Library/Frameworks/PROJ.framework/Programs:$PATH"
