One solution I see is to modify the tclConfig.sh file so that it only
looks in /usr/include for headers and then just do a one-line
command to manually install the headers:

install -v -m644 *.h ../generic/*.h /usr/include

Only thing is, how many (broken) applications bypass tclConfig.sh and
look in /usr/include/tcl8.4/unix for headers? Sure the app should be
considered broken, but do we want to find this out this close to
release?

Perhaps this whole issue can be pushed off until after the release.
Anyway my two cents.
