Hmm, probably.  It's been a while since I found that I needed to  
specify --with-opengl-libs=, so I don't remember what the problem was

It's the only way it works reliably right now.  Built with TclTk  
Aqua, NVIZ runs initially, but has other problems.  Not to mention  
that Tcltk Aqua has general appearance quirks - it almost looks more  
out of place on OSX than TclTk X11.

With the focus on moving the GUI to Python I haven't looked into  
figuring out details.  Presumably, a non-TclTk version of NVIZ will  
be developed.
