The aqua variant was apparently removed from the tk port when it was  
updated from 8.4.16 to 8.5.0. A new quartz variant was added which  
contains the same --enable-aqua configure argument that the aqua  
variant had, but the quartz variant was commented out, meaning it  
cannot be used. The quartz variant remains commented out to this day.  
Perhaps it doesn't work right.

Markus, can you explain what the issues are here?
