	Now that astro/gpsman/Makefile says that GPSMan depends on
	wish8.4, the fact that as distributed, it actually depends on
	wish 8.3 can prevent the application from working at all.

How-To-Repeat: 	Build/install the astro/gpsman port on a machine that does not
	already have wish8.3 installed.  When you try to run it,
	you should get:

	localhost(4.9-RC)[4] which gpsman
	/usr/local/bin/gpsman
	localhost(4.9-RC)[5] !$
	gpsman
	exec: wish8.3: not found
	localhost(4.9-RC)[6] 

	which isn't especially encouraging.

	When I eyeballed Kris' change to the port for tk84, I failed to
	pay attention to the "patch" files.  :-(  Now that I have my
	laptop back, and it has a working serial port, I had occasion
	to try the port.  And since the laptop's disk drive had started
	failing, I'm doing it on a fresh drive -- one that didn't have
	wish8.3.

	I suppose one might create a "magic symlink," but that's really
	a bit too gross to take seriously.  :-}
