Further inspection of the 3 setup files in the pyraf distro indicates a
dependence on x11, and since I'm also trying to get the latest XQuartz
x11 server working (see open ticket
http://xquartz.macosforge.org/trac/ticket/337 ), it makes no sense to
try getting pyraf working yet. And I strongly suspect I know nowhere
near enough to tackle the port just yet. I'll (probably) be back.
