...this won't conflict with the apple/aqua tcl/tk:  the fink one is  
different (ie. works thru x11)...fink does use tcl to do some of it's  
package handling...

...XCode by default only installs one gcc version, but it's useful to  
have multiple versions around, especially when trying to compile  
software that may require a specific compiler version to compile...ya  
might want to read up on fink:  it installs many things which you may  
not directly need, but that the package maintainer needs to provide  
the programs you do want...it all goes into /sw anyway, so if you  
decide you don't like it, just delete...
