"Of course!"

===> Installing for tcl-8.3.4
===> tcl-8.4.6nb5 is already installed - perhaps an older version?

Ok, so the "solution" is: Stick with tcl/tk83 on systems where you want to use
ruby's tcltklib ? "Fine, but what about the others?" In my case:

ocaml vs. ruby-tcltklib. The former wants 'tk', the latter 'tk83'...

Er, help ?

Thanks in advance,
