 In LFS and DIY, the tcl installation has been simplified by using the
 Makefile target 'install-private-headers' that I believe was introduced in
 tcl-8.4.9.  While it has been pointed out that those systems are only
 creating tcl bindings for one package, expect, I think we should see if
 this can be introduced in BLFS.

 Looking at the book source, these are the packages that have links to the
 tcl page:

 {{{
 ./basicnet/netlibs/wvstreams.xml
 ./postlfs/editors/vim.xml
 ./xsoft/other/gaim.xml
 ./server/databases/postgresql.xml
 ./server/databases/db.xml
 ./general/prog/expect.xml
 ./general/prog/tk.xml
 ./general/genutils/pilot-link.xml
 }}}

 I will be looking into whether these packages will find a link to tcl if
 the headers are installed with 'install-private-headers' instead of the
 way they are in the book now.
