[Bug-mit-scheme] 9.2 on MacOS does not prompt to install X11 as 9.1 does

Greetings Keepers of the Scheme,
First timer on MacOS...
I downloaded 9.2 to a 10.9.2 MacOS machine, installed and checksum'd without issue.
Double clicking on the icon resulted in nothing happening.

Via the terminal, after digging into the package, the 'start' binary gave a display of edwin but interaction caused a crash. After a few minutes the process started spinning and gobbled up all CPU.

I downloaded 9.1 and installed it without issue. It did however prompt me to install X11.

After X11 was installed, both 9.1 and 9.2 work correctly.

I did not find an indication that X11 was required on MacOS in your documentation, so it seems like the check the 9.1 install performs may need to return for use in 9.2. Or perhaps it's just broken in 9.2.
