[GRASS-user] Installing Add-ons on a Mac

Way back before g.extension, I wasn't satisified with GEM, and there wasn't much interest in fixing it up, so I added 'modbuild' to the Mac package.

It's still there, though it's not obvious (it's breifly mentioned in one of the readmes).  Find it in /Library/GRASS/6.4.  Copy it to your home folder (to avoid permissions problems) and follow the instructions in the readme in that folder.

One additional thing you need to do, discovered recently, is copy all the static *.a libraries from the GRASS application (/Applications/GRASS-6.4.app/Contents/MacOS/lib) to the modbuild/Modules/lib folder.

Note that installation of the module is not automatic.
