Hi all,

I have now installed MacTex2008 with the GUIs and TK. I see the TK  
directory in /Library/Perl/5.8.6/darwin-thread-multi-2level/
I have the binaries in usr/local/bin
Still, envoking tlmgr --gui in Terminal.app with X11 running does not  
start the GUI but gives me:

Cannot load Tk, thus the GUI cannot be started!
The Perl/Tk module is not shipped with the TeX Live installation.
You have to install it to get tlmgr GUI running. See
http://tug.org/texlive/distro.html for more details.

The command line tool tlmgr seems to work fine.
This is my Path:

Could it be that MacPorts is the culprit?  I do not have tk from  
MacPorts but a Perl 5.8 installation.
