The necessity for rebuilding I think means if you want your binaries  
to use a newer GRASS 6.4.

Software on OSX has library paths and versions hardwired, so there is  
less chance of breaking something with a different version.  ie, Qgis  
built with GRASS 6.3 support will continue to use GRASS 6.3, even if  
GRASS 6.4 is installed (the GRASS app keeps versions as separate app  

But if you had previously built Qgis for GRASS 6.4, then updated GRASS  
6.4 which now includes this new versioning method, THEN you'll need to  
rebuild Qgis (or GRASS GDAL plugin or R extension).

Note: for my GDAL framework and Qgis, they use GRASS 6.3, so no  
updating of those is needed, but you do need to keep GRASS 6.3
