Hey guys,

Is there a good reason why BLFS has all the installation steps for the
headers?  In LFS and DIY, `make install-private-headers' is used
(think it was introduced in tcl-8.4.11), and expect finds what it
needs by adding --with-tcl=/tools/lib --with-tclinclude=/tools/include
to the configure line.

I think it would be worthwhile to see if apps that use tcl (expect and
tk are foremost) still work with `make install-private-headers'.  It
would simplify the build a lot.
