I've been trying to wade through using pkgsrc on os/x also. I've
tried to build a fair number of packages and most of them don't
build. I am seeing two main types of problems that I haven't been
able to make progress with (tk is included here):

1) There are linker problems in that os/x's linker apparently
doesn't always build the libraries correctly or something like that.
An example is the pr I filed for fonts/fontconfig - pkg/23408 :

Making all in fc-cache

If we could find a solution for this, I would be glad to try to
make patches for the pkgs that I need. I've read of similar problems,
but I haven't seen a solution yet.

2) some packages don't build or install correctly the first time,
but complete (probably not correctly) the second. The installer or
linker or such (different reasons in many cases, afaict) misfires.

'meta'-like pkgs (that often require many dependencies) I've tried
that don't build (last week), often due to some dependency that
doesn't build:

Yes, we try to use fink, but fink pkgs often aren't built to be
used as dependencies, etc. so are pretty useless in many cases.
