Well, if we want the library we should test for the library.  Based 
on simplistic poking around I would propose "does it work to do cc 
tkt.c -ltk -ltcl" where tkt.c contains:

#include <tk.h>
int main(int argc, char **argv)
	Tcl_Interp i;

	Tk_InitImageArgs(&i, argc, &argv);

I'll try faking it out when I get a chance.  Maybe a ln -s 
/Application/... /usr/local/bin/wish.

*sigh*  Oh, probably.  Postgres is a big program with justifiably big 
documentation.  I've done the the install a few times so I *think* I 
don't need to look at the documentation beyond ./configure --help.

Thanks for the tip anyway.
