Before posting a PR I'll ask whether this error I receive after a fresh installation of paraview from ports today on FreeBSD 8.0-RC1/amd64 is an serious issue or something related on misconfiguration.

Besides, tcl/tk 8.4 is up to date and present on the system.
Hope someone can help,



ParaView error: InitializeTcl failed
Tk_Init error: Can't find a usable tk.tcl in the following directories:

This probably means that tk wasn't installed properly.
