The private Tk headers needed to build Togl are not available in Apple's
Tcl/Tk Aqua (for Tiger, Mac OS 10.4). TK_SRC_DIR points to Apple's
source dir used when building Mac OS X and is not available. There
needs to be a way to override TK_SRC_DIR to use a downloaded copy of
the source (8.4.7 in Tiger). I manually overrided this in configure and it
works.

In the non-Apple distro of Tcl/Tk Aqua (the only way to get an Aqua
version on Panther (10.3), since Apple's is X11-based here), they are in a
non-standard location, together (src/generic, src/macosx and src/xlib are
in a single PrivateHeaders folder). So this should be taken into account
also.

    Since togl needs the private Tk headers for Aqua, the solution will be to provide binary distributions (make bindist).
