Well, the package name looks a bit odd and it's a bug that installs
can complete when there are errors in creating .o files...

But did you install Tcl/Tk on your system first? If so, where does it
keep the tk.h file? If it isn't in the normal search path, there's no
(obvious) way for an add-on package to figure out where to find it.
