+<b>Extra notes:</b>
+<li>If you use the alternate build system in grass 5.3 (i.e. use the <pre>--enable-gmake=no</pre> switch to configure), you will get an error when the man pages are built.  This is because OS X uses the BSD version of man and it does not support the same syntax as GNU man (used on Linux).  To get around this, set the environment variable MAN2CAT to <pre>groff -Wall -t -Tlatin1 -mandoc</pre> before the make command.  So if you're using bash (now the default in OS X), you can do the following instead of just make:
+<pre>make CAT2MAN='groff -Wall -t -Tlatin1 -mandoc'</pre>
+or if you are using tcsh, do 
+<pre>setenv CAT2MAN 'groff -Wall -t -Tlatin1 -mandoc'
