OK, I can see now that /usr/lib/tk8.4/tkConfig.sh sets TK_PREFIX
in the environment of "configure". But what is meant to
propagate this environment variable into the Makefile? I don't
see anything intended to do that. Autoconf does not
automatically propagate all environment variables from
"configure" into Makefiles (nor should it).
It looks to me like there's a missing piece in the build system.
