If you are trying to use the GUI remotely from a Mac you might try using -Y:
ssh -Y user at hostname
'xeyes' is a good test if X will get passed over the remote connection.
As long as the remote host is set up correctly I don't think you have to bother
with any PATH or .grass.bashrc / .grass.cshrc files.
