[Ifeffit] compilation problem under MAC OS X

   I thought I would bring up the Wiki entry regarding installation  
on Tiger 10.4 at (http://cars9.uchicago.edu/cgi-bin/ifeffit/faqwiz? 
req=all#2.12). If there is a problem, I would like to modify the  
text.  In short, I have (re)installed horae on two 10.4 systems  
upgraded from 10.3 as well as on a brand spanking new dual G5.  It  
works without error on each.  For the G5, I installed the new version  
of Tk (as explained in the Wiki entry) and then just ran the binary  
installer (as I recall).  I don't recall having any problems with the  
installation and it works fine on all three machines.  Please excuse  
me for mentioning the obvious, but if this a new machine with the OS  
pre-installed, it is necessary to install X11 which is an optionally  
install on the included installation DVD's.  Once this is installed,  
download Tk (tcl is included and does not require reinstallation) and  
install it, and then the binary installer for ifeffit.  I don't  
recall if the binary installer has the latest version of horae and  
ifeffit, but once the base installation is in place, you can upgrade  
any time from terminal by typing "sudo horae_update".
