from UbuntuGIS's ppa repository?
if so, you'll have to get the grass-dev package
from there too.

No, neither version of those ubuntu packages has
a fully working g.extension yet. I've recently fixed
the debian packaging rules to allow it to work, but
that won't be in any of the new debian or ubuntu
packages until 6.4.2 probably.

are you running 32 or 64 bit install of maverick?
