[R-SIG-Mac] Rcmdr on Mac OS 10.4.4

   The problem seems to be that tcltk just won't load, nor can it be  
installed from CRAN.  Any ideas?  Even clean installs of R (on  
machines never having had R installed) reproduce this problem.  Is it  
just broken for the latest release, or what?

Loading Tcl/Tk interface ... Error in dyn.load(x, as.logical(local),  
as.logical(now)) :
	unable to load shared library '/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/ 
libs/tcltk.so, 10): Library not loaded: /usr/local/lib/libtcl8.4.dylib
   Referenced from: /Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Resources/library/ 
   Reason: image not found
Error: .onLoad failed in 'loadNamespace' for 'tcltk'
Error: package/namespace load failed for 'tcltk'
