Bug#505213: x11vnc depends on the tk8.4 package

Package: x11vnc
Version: 0.9.3.dfsg.1-1

The x11vnc program's "-gui" option depends on the tk8.4 package (via
/usr/bin/wish).  Linux distros like debian seem to not ship this utility

One thing it would enable is creating a desktop menu item that would
launch a gui for x11vnc.  E.g. 'x11vnc -gui tray=setpass -rfbport 5900'
intended for naive users.  This would enable addressing bug #475113:
