In the past I have configured without using the "--with-tcltk" flag,
and R of course built just fine.  But it *did not* have tcltk 
capability.  When I wanted that capability I had to start using the
aforesaid flag.

It makes absolutely no sense that one would get tcltk capability when 
configuring without the flag but *not* get it when configuring *with* 
the flag.  If that is indeed the case then this definitely constitutes a 
bug in the "configure" system.

I cannot believe that it would work to leave out the flag, but I'll try 
it just for the sake of "completeness".
