Exactly. I am *not* 100% sure what is in the book is correct. In fact
I am less than 50% sure.
The more I research this, the more I think that this should be a basic
CMMI package. We should just fundamentally use the LFS Chapter 5
./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-threads
ln -sv tclsh8.4 /tools/bin/tclsh
Nothing more unless we can positively establish a need. At least they
say that the private headers are needed for expect.
