Hi Tony,

The error message seems pretty clear:

You might re-run the R-2.5 installer and see if there is a customize
option that allows you to install Tcl/Tk (there used to be such an
option).  You might also investigate differences in capabilities()
between your two R's.

Note that there seem to OSX binaries available for BioC 2.0 and you
might want to just try installing those...
