> I don't know where is the problem. It seems that Python environment is
somehow broken in GRASS session. This might be due to the different ways
how software is installed on Mac.

To understand the problem more, you can try to run python from standard
command line but in GRASS GIS session (i.e. not from the GUI). You can also
check PYTHONPATH environmental variable there. Compare also values of
DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH environmental variable. Also Python variable
sys.executable might be interesting.

Note that there is also v.class.ml module which has richer but different
functionality and can use also scikit-learn library.
