hmm, that used to be the case. Up to around 8.0, 8.1? tcl/tk was
great in its installation. Now it, eh, sucks. The installation of
8.3 and 8.4 has more bugs than the one Dan pointed out.
Dan: you can look at tclConfig.sh and tkConfig.sh. Some files are
referenced incorrectly--you have to change the filenames to the
installed version instead of the build version. You'll also have to
get rid of comments in compiler flags.
