I put up a post recently that might have been a bit confusing because 
jack was written in the subject line (although thanks to all of you who 
responded).  My problem is not using pd with jack (yet).  I'm having 
trouble getting pd's configure script to find my installed tcl/tk 

I've got Tcl/Tk 8.4 installed in the standard 
/Library/Frameworks/Tcl.framework and ./Tk.framework (Batteries 
Included Installer...), yet running ./configure (ignoring jack for now) 
fails with:

checking tcl.h usability... yes
checking tcl.h presence... yes
checking for tcl.h... yes
checking for main in -ltcl8.7... no
checking for main in -ltcl8.4... yes
checking for main in -ltk8.7... no
checking for main in -ltk8.4... no
no tk library found
configure: creating ./config.status
config.status: creating makefile

Anyone else experience this?  Know a good workaround?  The only thing I 
can think of that might be confusing this that I have tcl/tk installed 
as part of the fink collection as well, although if I remove the fink 
version of tcl/tk it has no effect on my present difficulties with PD.

Thanks again... I'm an avid user of PD (have been for over a year now) 
but am not a programmer at all, so I hope this isn't something *too*
