Ok a few short remarks after a first look:
* There are a lot of commented out lines in debian/rules - need them or
  delete them. ;)
* Is there a reason to build-dep on tcl 8.4? Otherwise build-dep on the
  tcl-dev package.
* One should try if you can utilize the 'tcltk-depends' helper script to
  get your depends from this tool and the ${tclsh:Depends} variable.
  (maybe take a look at tclcurl or mysqltcl)
* Note in debian/copyright that you're now maintaining the package.

There is a pkg-tcltk-devel mailinglist on lists.alioth.org,
it's worth posting RFS there too so that people interested in Tcl related
packages see them.
