The idea is that if we can somehow detect if X11 is running /before/ we try
to load the Tk module, then we can exit with a hopefully nicer error message
than what happens currently.  If things work as I expect (which they almost
never do on Mac OS, but one never knows), DISPLAY should be set iff X11 is
running.  Can you check this, Mojca?
