I just got around to installing my update of GRASS 5.0.0pre4 from 
OpenOSX and find I've a problem with the TlcTkGRASS gui. I don't 
currently use the GUI but will want to do so and would appreciate any 
help getting it going again.

When I give the command tlctkgrass& as below

GRASS 5.0.0pre4 > tcltkgrass&

the main menu bar briefly appears and then I get the message:

[1] 456

Mapset <PERMANENT> in Location <leics>
GRASS 5.0.0pre4 > Error in startup script: can't read 
"env(TCLTKGRASSBASE)": no such variable
    while executing

If I open the Terminal and query as below:

Welcome to Darwin!
[localhost:~] eyreka% which xwininfo
[localhost:~] eyreka% ls /usrX11R6/bin/xwininfo
ls: /usrX11R6/bin/xwininfo: No such file or directory
[localhost:~] eyreka%

I also ran command below

[localhost:~] eyreka% echo $path | grep /usr/X11R6/bin

and got

/sw/bin /sw/sbin /Users/eyreka/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin 
/Users/eyreka/bin /usr/local/bin /usr/bin /bin /usr/local/sbin /usr/sbin 
/sbin /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin1.3.7 /usr/X11R6/bin 
[localhost:~] eyreka%

Can you rescue me again?

One thing different this time is that I recently downloaded the fink 
0.4.0 installer package and  ran selfupdate-cvs.
