[EMBOSS] Installation help

Hello all,

After numerous attempts following suggestions on this list, I never 
have been able to get the X11 version of EMBOSS to install on my iBook 
under Mac OS X 10.3.8, but I installed and have been using the command 
line version without trouble (and using the GUI programs remotely with 
EMBOSS on a server and running the Mac X11 client locally).

Next week I am going to upgrade to OSX 10.4 "Tiger", and was thinking 
of trying a full EMBOSS install again. I would be interested to hear 
from anyone who has done this (EMBOSS on Tiger) and any tips/advice. 
Also, it is not clear to me whether it would be best to uninstall 
everything and reinstall, or whether I could just install the X11 parts 
over an existing install.
