You can do it like this in psql:

\a
\t
\o /tmp/grant.sql
SELECT      'GRANT ALL ON ' || n.nspname || '.' || c.relname ||
            ' TO joe;'
  FROM      pg_catalog.pg_class AS c 
            LEFT JOIN pg_catalog.pg_namespace AS n
                 ON n.oid = c.relnamespace
  WHERE     c.relkind IN ('r','v','S') AND
            n.nspname NOT IN ('pg_catalog', 'pg_toast') AND
            pg_catalog.pg_table_is_visible(c.oid)
  ORDER BY  n.nspname, c.relname;
\o
\i /tmp/grant.sql


The above could be put in a script and run from a Unix command prompt.

(The SQL used above is adaated from that used by psql's \d command.)
