IMHO it would be unwise for any current GR component to be dependent on "tuntaposx", since it's a non-standard addition to the OS (a kernel extension, not just a library with headers and related files).

If this were made into its own component (e.g., "gr-tuntap"), then I'd be all for it. On Darwin, it would require tuntaposx to be installed, which shouldn't be difficult to check for. On other platforms, checking might be easier, but all of this would be done during configure via the config/*.m4 scripts anyway.
