Thank you very very much!!!!!
I hope binaries of grass-6.5 or grass7.

I am not so familiar with PC, so I try to tell you my PC environment  

There are 3 type of PC around me.
If possible, binaries for Mac is preferable because mac has the  
biggest memory,
but binaries for linux and windows+cygwin is available.

PC1 (note pc)
Windows XP professional + cygwin
Grass - 6.2.3 is already installed
* I used this pc to import shp file and failed with an error message  
<n failed "node.c", line48 Aborted (core dumped)>.
* Grass on this pc reported that lu2543s.shp is tmerc, but it may not  
be true...

Fedora Core 5
Grass-6.2.2 is already installed
* import of shp file was forced to stop, probably because of shortage  
of memory...?

Mac OS 10.5.6
2.1GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Grass-6.3 is already installed
* import of shp file was failed with an error message as follows:
Break polygons:
Registering points ... 17107648v.in.ogr(1388) malloc: ***  
mmap(size=624242688) failed (error code=12)
*** error: can't allocate region
*** set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break to debug
ERROR: G_realloc: out of memory

With best regards,
