I'm just getting to one of my GRASS digests from yesterday (didn't have much
time to look at email). It turns out that bwidget LabelFrame is not just a
drop in replacement for the tk 8.4 labelframe. For one thing, LabelFrame
seems buggy in the version of bwidgets that GRASS uses and the frame border
will not draw with a label there. Second the options are slightly different.

If you want to replace the labelframe statement in toolbox.tcl (ca. Line
223) with the following and see what happens, I guess go ahead. On my Mac,
running x11, it creates the label but does not draw the box, no matter what
I do. This is problematic, but maybe it at least runs on 8.3. Again, I can't
say if there are any other 8.4 features that won't run on 8.3, so I'm not
sure it's worth it anyway.

I don't know what happens on Mac Aqua or Windows. I'm tied up most of the
rest of the day and so can't test further.

LabelFrame .bpf -bd 1 -relief groove -side top -anchor n \
