Do you have one of the tcl-dev packages installed?  Which one?  Come to think
of it, I think it will only compile with tcl8.0-dev, and I should change the
build-depends to indicate that.  If any tcl experts want to help get it working
with a newer tcl, I would be happy to fix it and forward the patch upstream.

The other problem with supporting multiple tcl's is that I need to tell
rrdtool's configure script where to find tclConfig.sh.  Unfortunately,
tcl8.0-dev puts it in /usr/lib, while tcl8.2-dev and tcl8.3-dev use
/usr/lib/tcl{8.2,8.3}/tclConfig.sh.  I don't understand why this is necessary,
since the various tclVER-dev packages conflict with each other.
