I made the changes to the Makefile but xmaxima will not run.

DULES =               lang/python
MODPY_RUNDEP =          No

BUILD_DEPENDS =         print/texinfo
LIB_DEPENDS=            lang/ecl
RUN_DEPENDS =           devel/desktop-file-utils \
                        misc/rlwrap \


MAKE_FLAGS =            MAKEINFO="${LOCALBASE}/bin/gtexi2any" \

CONFIGURE_ARGS+=        --enable-ecl

FLAVORS=                no_x11

.if !${FLAVOR:Mno_x11}
MODULES+=               x11/tk
MODTK_VERSION =         8.6
CONFIGURE_ARGS +=       --with-wish=${MODTK_BIN}

.include <bsd.port.mk>

Stuart Henderson, on ports@, pointed out this from the beginning of
the xmaxima shell script:

#  -*- mode: tcl; fill-column: 75; tab-width: 8 -*- \
exec /usr/local/bin/wish8.5 "$0" -- "$@"

package require Tk 8.6

Notice the call to wish8.5? Stuart says the following:
you have the wrong wish version in the exec line. this is usually
fixed up by passing the file to ${MODTCL_WISH_ADJ} in some build/configure
stage. maybe along the lines of pre-build: 

${MODTCL_WISH_ADJ} ${WRKSRC}/path/to/file

I'll have to read up on this 

Kind regards,
