TclTk 8.5 Aqua should be compatible with GRASS on OS X, and is preferred over 8.4.

I've been using ActiveTcl 8.5.8 for a while with no problems.  Even latest GRASS 6.5 SVN works.  But after updating to ActiveTcl 8.5.9, I get the compile error.  So it looks like something changed for the worse in 8.5.9.  Maybe that's the Cocoa change.  Bad thing to do in a point release :(

See if you can download 8.5.8.
