Nope. When I remove the two pkgsrc patches, tk builds perfectly fine.
Installation breaks, because PLIST expects different files at different
What is the rationale for these changes? I can partly understand, why
all header files are moved to "/usr/pkg/include/tk". But to "fix"
dependent software, symlinks are created in /usr/pkg/include. Why not
install the headers there in the first place?
I can only assume that these are remnants of trying to allow parallel
installations of different versions of Tcl and Tk. As this endeavor has
been abandoned, why not remove all the pkgsrc changes and let the
package install its files where it intends to do. I don't see anything
that breaks any pkgsrc conventions.
