I was trying to build few packages that were depend on tcl.

My problem is:
	I have packages that would run in both tcl 8.3 and  8.4. Before, i had tcl 
8.3 as default package under pkgsrc/lang/tcl. So, i included the library 
libtcl83.a. Now its tcl 8.4 under pkgsrc/lang/tcl, so the library name 
changes to libtcl84.a. when i build the package i get errors.

Is there a way to get the version of installed tcl other than writing a 
configure script. I was wondering since there are variables that say what 
version of perl to use. Are there any variable like that for tcl. If 
theren't any, please suggest me a good way to get around the problem.

Thanks for your help in advance.
