I received the error below after cat'ing Jeshua's binary pieces. The installer didn't recognize the cat'ed package as a .tar.gz, when I added the .tar.gz when cat'ing. Then I tried cat'ing to a file named 'grass5.0beta11_Darwin_bin' and tar'ing and gz'ing it. This solved the installer's problem with .tar.gz. Below is the output after running the install script.
