Alright thanks guys for the suggestions, I re-did my pkgbuild. When I did an
svn-checkout and was able to compile it just fine. I even used the same
configure line as last time.

./unix/config/configure --prefix=/usr --without-quartz --with-x

I also got my tarball from the link that Bert said in his email, I don't
know why, but it just worked this time..

Waiting for it to re-compile now with my pkgbuild then I'll install it and
try and run etoys again.

Sorry I haven't said anything for two days!
