Searching for tcltk on the BioConductor site yields

CRAN - Package tcltk2 - http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/tcltk2/
    CRAN - Package tcltk2 tcltk2: Tcl/Tk Additions A series of additional Tcl commands and Tk widgets with style and various functions (under Windows: DDE exchange, access to the registry

If you install tcltk2, is tcltk then available?

Subject: [R] Where is the tcltk package?

Perhaps I'm being even thicker than usual, but I can't find
the tcltk package on CRAN.  There is a tcltk2 package, which says
that it is a collection of supplements to tcltk, but I cannot
see a just-plain tcltk anywhere.

If I try to install tcltk2 (from the Linux command line, or using
install.packages() in R) it complains that it needs tcltk.

If I try to install tcltk using install.packages() it tells me that
this package is not available.

What is going on?
