Hi Byron
Do you have compilation on for X11? i think that this is an issue 
regarding the X11 gl Libs. I think it once happened to me when wrapping 
for NONaquaTCL/TK. and maybe i set the camke flag for X11 compilation 
on. i remember someone posting to the list that  cmake tries to link 
agains the X11 gl libs instead of the openGL framework libs.. and 
freaks out somehow.
my setup is OSX 10.2.5, AquaTCL/TK and python2.2.2 framework intstall 
from source. compilation for X11 was set off in cmake.
BUT: mayavi is so far not working for me. Maybe i should carfully 
follow Adrains mail.
