By the way, this days I tried to compile some Tcl extension package (namely
ctk) and its configure script wasn't able to find the Tcl library.
Investigating the problem, I found out that Debian doesn't install a libtcl.a
or libtcl.so but libtcl7.4.a and and libtcl7.4.so.
I know that is done to allow for the simultaneous installation of Tcl 7.4 and
7.5 (and possibly other future versions). However, I just wonder if it should
exist a link to one of those libraries from /etc/alternatives (and, of course,
one from /usr/lib/libtcl.so to it) so that configuration scripts can find the
real library easily. I can see that the packages are doing that already for
wish and tclsh, but not for the library. Am I missing something?
