It's not a weird case: you install tk into /usr/X11R6 if you're not using
xpkgwedge. Why? The reason for turning xpkgwedge _off_ is because of
people who want includes and libraries for X programs to be in /usr/X11R6 so
that other third-party software can use it, and tk is one of those.
"If you want tk in /usr/pkg, use xpkgwedge." Otherwise it goes where all
other X-dependent stuff goes. Tk is perfectly happy, given proper config
arguments, to have a completely different install path from Tcl.
Is there another case like this that I missed? 8-)
