It seems like I saw an email in the past few days about a python library
fix for Darwin/Mac OS X platform. I think it was for a missing -lpython or
something like that. Anyways, cvs update and py-Tk still failed to build
due to unknown functions.

(If anyone can point me to email about this fix, please do.)

Maybe some PKGREVISION should have bumped -- at least on Darwin/Mac OS X
-- so it would force reinstall of something that fixes this.

Also, I see that python 2.4 is now in pkgsrc. So I will use it instead.
But I see that PYTHON_VERSIONS_ACCEPTED didn't list the new python for the
x11/py-Tk. Should all the PYTHON_VERSIONS_ACCEPTED be fixed -- or should
this be done on a one at a time as tested basis?

Are these type of things appropriate to fix for the freeze? (I think so,
since it should be stable.)
