I think support for adding addons to the wx menus is still to-do.
(there was some support for that in the tcl/tk gui, .. maybe
two ways IIRC, one via GEM the other via.. ?)

otherwise you need to run it from the command line, or edit
the menu file yourself to add it.
see $GISBASE/etc/wxpython/xml/menudata.xml

trunk is grass 7.
releasebranch_6_4 is what will become 6.4.3.
