Hi Kurt

Tcltk for Acqua does not work with my GRASS OS X. My Grass use Tcltk 
for Unix (included in Grass Libraries) . Im my OSX distribution there 
is all: you just have to install Apple's X11.  Tcltk for Acqua DOES 
NOT WORK with my Grass.

 From my grass 5.3 compiled with shared libraries I will have these size:

				now		with shared
grass53	single package		74 MB		11 MB
