sguil-client startup problem

No worries, I had to deinstall tclX, ictl , iwidgets and sguil-client and reinstall them in the same order to make things work. 
Not touching the tcl8.5 installation.

On the server side, Barnyard2 required an extra addition in the Makefile, referencing the --with-tcllib=<path> location (after the mysql reference).
Followed by a deinstall and install , resulting in a working snort -> barnyard2 -> sguil environment.

Thanks for your time.

Met vriendelijke groet / Kind regards,

Apparently the default tcl install is now 8.5.  Looks like I'm going to 
have to update the ports.

You *may* be able to fix your problem by editing the file, 
although I'm not sure what other impacts that might have.  The script calls 
wish8.4 explicitly, but that probably doesn't exist on your system.  Change 
it to 8.5 and see if that fixes the problem.
