tcl85 compiles and installs fine on MirBSD. However, tk85 gives:

===> Installing for tk-8.5.12
=> Generating pre-install file lists
Creating package index
Installing to /usr/pkgsrc/x11/tk/work/.destdir/usr/pkg/lib/
chmod: /usr/pkgsrc/x11/tk/work/.destdir/usr/pkg/lib/ No
such file or directory
*** Error code 1

So it seems that it does not create a shared library. I will
investigate this further.

In addition, "bmake test" does not work for Tk because the tcltest
package is not installed:

$ tclsh
% package require tcltest
can't find package tcltest

The package is a part of the Tcl source, and it should probably be
installed, along with a few others. It used to be in the PLIST along
with a few others. Installing them might fix some of the breakage you
are seeing in other packages as well.
