It looks like it's linking to the GRASS.app libraries you want it to.

I wonder if there is some sort of clash with different GRASS  
libraries.  Just a guess (I don't much about the fine points of  
library linking at runtime).

What about the crash log for Qgis?  The last list there shows  
everything that was loaded.

Is there a download link so I can try this build?

I'm curious - where did you get your GRASS.app or how did you build  
it?  I have a 6.2.1 build available that mirrors, mostly, the OSX app  
build I added recently to 6.3 CVS. That is, I've sortof made my way  
the official way to build GRASS as an OSX app ;)
