It used to be sufficient to configure R with

configure --enable-R-shlib  
--with-blas='-framework vecLib' --with-lapack --with-aqua

but for some reason this does get Tcl/Tk support build in Panther  
(batteries included version of Aqua Tcl/Tk,
but observe 8.4.3 is also sitting in /usr). I now need to set explicitly

TCLTK_LIBS=-framework Tcl -framework Tk
Headers -I/Library/Frameworks/Tk.framework/Versions/Current/Headers

for it to find stuff. Otherwise it will look in /usr/include for tk.h,  
and Apple does not include Tk, only Tcl.
