 According to a [http://opencircuitdesign.com/pipermail/xcircuit-
 dev/2010/000487.html mailing list post] by xcircuit's author, xcircuit
 relies on "low-level X11/Xlib calls". Compared to other Tk apps, it sounds
 non-trivial for xcircuit to support Tk Aqua, since it isn't completely
 relying on Tk's abstractions of whichever windowing system is used. Does
 it still make sense to leave this ticket open if `tk +x11` isn't really a
 workaround but rather a requirement?

 Currently, `xcircuit` (if the `require_active_variants` restriction is
 removed) and `xcircuit-devel` can't even compile with `tk +quartz` mainly
 due to redefinition errors in Xlib.h.
