[PD-dev] Re: problem making Pd.app with TclTk-8.4.9

Ok, a minor update:  that error happened when I used the Frameworks  
that were installed into /Library/Frameworks inside of the  
Pd.app/Contents instead of the Frameworks that come with the  
TclTkStandalone Wish\ Shell.app.  This is necessary for building the  
Pd.app since the newer standalone .apps no longer include the headers.   
When I swap the standalone Frameworks back, the Pd.app starts, but in a  
broken form.

When this Pd.app launches, it doesn't have the Prefernces or the Help  
menus, and it can't open any windows, either with File->New or  
File->Open.  Again, it works fine when its launched from the command,  
and therefore call's the Wish Shell.app

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of  
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an  
idea, which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps  
it to himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the  
possession of everyone, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of
