That's what the tilde '~' refers to, your home folder.

That's probably in the modbuild folder.  Yes, you can ignore this one.

Hmmm, what OSX version?  Did you install the GRASS build matching your  
system version? Which GRASS installer version (ie: is it the latest  
rc4-1)?  If OSX Leopard (10.5), did you install Python (it's OK not  
to, since the system Python is reasonably recent).

I have seen problems getting the GUI to start automatically vs  
starting it manually with g.gui, though the wxpython GUI seems to work  
now on startup.

The equator is so long, it could encircle the earth completely once.
