I'm on a MacBook Pro, Intel Core 2 Duo, 10.4.10, MP trunk from a
couple weeks ago, Xcode 2.4.1. This problem is clearly not very picky
about the systems it appears on. I think something broke somewhere,
since I didn't used to have any trouble installing tidy. I just
haven't had any time to investigate what's going on.

the tidy functions in php, described here:
then you need the +tidy variant. If you do not, then you do not.
