It seems that my g.extension points to the build dir
rather then to the installation. So what should I do to install a add- 
on which is executable
(globally) on my mac.?

I tried it also with /Library/GRASS/[GRASS version]/Modules/bin but i  
still fail to compile and it still points to my build dir...

is there any other good way to install an add on on a mac?
maybe you can explain in detail how to do that, i really don't have a  
clue after the readme...
