 Nope. When I remove the two pkgsrc patches, tk builds perfectly fine. 
 Installation breaks, because PLIST expects different files at different 
 What is the rationale for these changes? I can partly understand, why 
 all header files are moved to "/usr/pkg/include/tk". But to "fix" 
 dependent software, symlinks are created in /usr/pkg/include. Why not 
 install the headers there in the first place?
 I can only assume that these are remnants of trying to allow parallel 
 installations of different versions of Tcl and Tk. As this endeavor has 
 been abandoned, why not remove all the pkgsrc changes and let the 
 package install its files where it intends to do. I don't see anything 
 that breaks any pkgsrc conventions.
