What exactly are you trying to "fix"? I thought we agreed that the
solution was to move to a *NIX/X11 Tcl/Tk as already exists in Ports,
and rebuild the handful of programs which actually link against them
(namely: expect, insight, python, ruby, tcl3270, tcl-brlapi, tcl-db*,
tcl-ming, and WordNet.). I've already done much of the work, so why
must this take so long?
