I've taken the time to shuffle around the Tcl 7.3 and Tk 3.6p1 distributions
and make NetBSD style Makefiles for these. As an added bonus for those
running with shared libraries, the Makefiles will create the Tcl and Tk
libraries as shared.  As a result of this, my copy of "wish" went down in
on-disk size from 3.7M to 22K.

The NetBSDized Tcl and Tk distributions can be fetched from in
the pub/NetBSD/ports/ directory.

BTW, this is not a vote to bring Tk and Tcl into the main distribution :-),
only an attempt to help those using or planning to use these tools on NetBSD.
