Re: Bug#590126: rcmdr: FTBFS on mips{,el}: Error : package 'tcltk' could not be loaded



Hi Dirk:

  In looking at the build dependencies for rcmdr, I see that it
requires r-base-dev,
which requires r-base-core, which then requires tcl8.5 on all architectures
but m68k, mips, and mipsel.  That's not a problem for m68k,
because it requires tcl8.4 instead, but there doesn't seem to be any
build dependency for any version of tcl on mips or mipsel.
Perhaps that's the problem?

  I hope this helps.

Shane
