Binaries? If so, what platform? As far as I've seen the sources are
quite happy with everything newer than 8.1:

pd at linux:~/r-devel/BUILD> ldd library/tcltk/libs/tcltk.so
        libtcl8.4.so => /usr/lib64/libtcl8.4.so (0x0000002a95681000)
        libtk8.4.so => /usr/lib64/libtk8.4.so (0x0000002a95838000)
        libX11.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib64/libX11.so.6
        libdl.so.2 => /lib64/libdl.so.2 (0x0000002a95c43000)
