Bug#725290: emacspeak: build-depends on obsolete Tcl 8.4

I'd love to switch to the default tcl. But to be honest, I don't have
any (well, close to zero anyways) knowledge of tcl and how it works.

My main concern for not switching when I adopted the package emacspeak
was the line AFTER your patch below.

I don't seem to find tclx8.5 or tclx8.6 in Debian. Is the tclx packaging
unrelated and can/should tcl8.(5|6) and tclx8.4 be used simultaneous?
The version number suggests otherwise, but maybe that is just an
historical artifact.

Thanks for your help,
