[vtkusers] Using vtkpython with X11 on headless Mac OS X systems

I have found some references indicating that I will also need to
rebuild the python tkinter module so that it will use X11 Tk as
well. X11 Tcl/Tk seems to be part of the TclTkAquaBI package.
I understand they are installing an X11 option in the build script
for python 2.5 but I'm still at Python 2.4 so I'll have to find a way
to hack it.
