I did a ln -s /Applications/Wish\\ 
Shell /usr/local/bin/wish, and I linked to 
That got it past the configure step.  If you really need wish then 
this probably wouldn't work.  I know there is an easy way to start a 
GUI app from the command line and someone needs to create a shell 
wrapper for the purpose.

It still failed to compile due to needing some X11 header file even 
though this is specifically not an X11 tk port.  This is a tk issue 
not a Postgres issue.

After loading the openssl .h files I was able to get it to configure 
as follows:
--with-includes=<tcl header dirs>
--with-tcl  --without-tk  --with-tclconfig=<tcl public header dir>
--with-krb4=/usr/local  (I have kth-krb installed for AFS support, 
krb5 native doesn't work)

It passes all the regression tests.

Note that I can't actually try out the kerberos support without 
paying $30/month for a postgres account including AFS space and the 
whole ball of wax.  I just wanted to see if it would compile since 
the krb5 native option didn't work.  I'm still not sure if this is a 
MacOSX linker issue or some funny in the way Postgres looks at
