Yes, that is what I do for win32.

Except that Tk is not installed by default in OS-X either. It is
probably more common than GTK, however.

Right, maybe PS would be a more sensible default, although I'm willing
to bet most users end up using Tk.

I'd vote for Agg. Postscript is not the native format on OS-X that it is on other unices.

Is there a way to make the default back-end system dependent on install?
