GRASS7 is not for "use" currently. It is only for core development at  
present. We are beginning a major rewrite of display drivers and  
raster formats. As of yesterday, many modules will no longer work.  
They will stay non-functional until drivers and libraries are  
rewritten or will be deprecated and their functionality replaced in  
other ways.

For use and "normal" development (module/GUI enhancement), use the  
GRASS 6 series. GRASS 6.4 from develbranch_6 is the current  
development version for GRASS 6 and is very usable. It has all current  
updates that are compatible with the current GRASS structure.
