Previous occurrences of this error message have been traced to the use
of the native MacOSX version of Tcl/Tk rather than a Unix/X11 version.

I suggest editing $GISBASE/scripts/d.m to run d.m.tcl using a specific
wish executable, i.e. changing:

 sh $GISBASE/etc/dm/d.m.tcl

to e.g.:

 /usr/bin/wish $GISBASE/etc/dm/d.m.tcl
