This would seem to work, although we would at least need a rule for *.sh.in ->
*.sh for the mkMakefile.[tcl|tk]defs.sh files needed for TCL/TK support.
I still have a problem with editing files to curcumvent configure. But I
could live with a solution as outlined above. I don't have to edit the
makefiles and if someone else wants to, well they roll the die and take their
