Oh, I filed reports with apple. In fact, for anyone with troubles on any
OSX, is your best friend. Use it.

It just made me think of the idea of reducing dependencies. Especially if,
for example, we want to move to Tcl 8.X or a new cURL/Subversion, before
Apple does.

I think a good start is what Ryan suggested. Start to bundle tcl 8.5 with
MacPorts and then move it to 8.6 unrelated to what Apple does.
