There is problem with PLIST.
NetBSD package has library names like libtcl84.so, while some other
architectures have dot between 8 and 4.
FreeBSD 4 and 5:
You might question, what's better: patch tcl/tk configures so they produce nodots versions for all libraries - or patch configure for NetBSD so it includes the dots. As I have seen, dependent packages use -ltcl84 (eg. name without dots), also see here: http://mail-index.netbsd.org/tech-pkg/2004/03/16/0003.html
-- so I think tcl and tk should use nodots, if problems in dependet
packages will appear, we could patch dependent packages then.
Compile tcl or tk on mentioned systems.
FreeBSD version included here:
BTW it seems very sad, that this problem persists, Greg Schwartz reported it in January.
