I've noticed two problems after the update of tcl & tk to 8.4:

1) x11/tk-Tix

builds then:

rm -f
gcc -pipe -shared -Wl,-x -o tixClass.o  tixCmds.o  tixCompat.o  tixError.o  tixGeometry.o  tixInit.o  tixList.o  tixMethod.o  tixOption.o   tixScroll.o  tixSmpLs.o  tixUtils.o  tixWidget.o tixDItem.o  tixDiITxt.o  tixDiImg.o  tixDiStyle.o  tixDiText.o  tixDiWin.o tixForm.o  tixFormMisc.o tixImgCmp.o  tixImgXpm.o  tixMwm.o  tixGrid.o  tixGrData.o  tixGrFmt.o  tixGrRC.o  tixGrSel.o  tixGrSort.o  tixGrUtl.o  tixHList.o  tixHLCol.o  tixHLInd.o  tixHLHdr.o  tixInputO.o  tixNBFrame.o  tixTList.o tixUnixDraw.o  tixUnixXpm.o  tixUnixWm.o  -L/usr/pkg/lib -Wl,-R/usr/pkg/lib -ltk84 -Wl,-R/usr/pkg/lib -L/usr/pkg/lib -ltcl84
ld: cannot find -ltk84
*** Error code 1


I don't get this one. exists in /usr/pkg/lib.

2) ruby-tcltklib

Mind the line with -ltcl83. I don't get this one either, but probably mainly
because I'm not firm with extconf.rb stuff :)

This is pkgsrc from two days ago, yet no commit in these areas has taken place
since then. This is on 1.6 ZI.
