I also run Mac OS X and when I do "make run" the TCL window appears  
*behind* other windows, so it is hard to see.  I don't know why this  
is.  Also I'm not sure if I installed a newer version of TCL/TK (wish)  
than the one that comes with Leopard.

Never tried it, but I don't see why it wouldn't work as long as the  
TCL/TK shell starts when you execute "wish".
