...yeh, don't know why this has been changed, but I always have to 
hand-modify the pd makefiles:  personally, I think the references 
re:tcl/tk are screwed up :-\  For some reason they are using a bunch of 
"../../../"'s, which makes the references relative to a particular dev 
environment setup, and therefore extremely installation 
specific...here's what I use in the makefile, just replace these lines 
in yours:

GINCLUDE = $(INCLUDE) -F/Library/Frameworks -framework Tcl -framework 
Tk         -I/Library/Frameworks/Tk.framework/Versions/Current/Headers  

...and then:

#this is for Max OSX only...
$(BIN_DIR)/pdtcl: $(GOBJ) $(GSRC)
	cd ../obj; libtool -dynamic -o $(BIN_DIR)/pdtcl $(GOBJ) \
	/Library/Frameworks/Tk.framework/Versions/Current/Tk \
	/Library/Frameworks/Tcl.framework/Versions/Current/Tcl \

...I don't think there's a real reason to specifically look for tk 
headers in "Tk.framework/Versions/8.4/Headers"; it'd be just as fine to 
do "Tk.framework/Versions/Current/Headers", or even 

...that's all I know about that!
