Thanks. I tried it and I think I will use that one. From my perspective
the big difference between the two is non-Apple one leaves room for a
window manager, but with the Apple one you don't need a window manager.

I have the same problem with GF/PD on both X11's.

BTW. "make test" crashes when compiling with -O3, but I seem to be able to
run a few things with jMax... benchmark.jmax says it takes 26 ms to
compute contrast/brightness on a 256*256 image. (a G3 laptop)

Excuse me? How is this possible? The Tcl/Tk part is running in the 
"pd-gui" process, while the X11 part is run in the "pd" process.
