Set GRASS_PYTHON to python2

If the default interpreter is Python3 grass-6.4.1 emerges fine but the GUI installed with USE="wxwidgets" does not start:

$ grass64 -wxpython

WELCOME TO GRASS              Version 6.4.1         2011

   1) Have at your side all available GRASS tutorials

   2) When working on your location, the following materials
      are extremely useful:
      - A topo map of your area
      - Current catalog of available computer maps

   3) Check the GRASS webpages for feedback mailinglists and more:
      http://www.grass-gis.org
      http://grass.osgeo.org

Adding the attached patch to PATCHES in the ebuild fixes this for me.

Closing as OBSOLETE - sci-geosciences/grass-7.0.1 has been added to the tree as per bug 514514 and subsequently revbumped. Note that sci-geosciences/grass:6 has been masked and will be removed from the tree in the coming weeks.
