well, the original maintainer (which orphaned the package) built the package
with python support (which is afaik mutually exclusive to --with-tcl). I was
doing a QA upload to fix a few outstanding bugs and didn't know how many of the
people make use of this feature (you remember my mail about the broken python
interpreter on the xcircuit list a few weeks back), so i kept it like that.
