There are (at least) 3 PostgreSQL Tcl interfaces on gborg:
  http://gborg.postgresql.org/project/pgintcl/
  http://gborg.postgresql.org/project/pgtcl/
  http://gborg.postgresql.org/project/pgtclng/

All three offer supersets of the commands in the bundled Tcl interface
libpgtcl which was distributed with PostgreSQL through 7.4.6, except that
pgintcl can't do COPY FROM/TO in the same way.  Other incompatibilities
among the three are in extensions to the core commands, and bug fixes. So,
they are all mostly or entirely compatible with the old libpgtcl.

You should probably ask the Pgaccess people which versions they are using
and/or testing. At one point, they distributed pgintcl with their product;
it is written in Tcl and does not require compiling, so it ran with
Pgaccess with no building required.  But it is slower than the other two.
I only test pgintcl and pgtclng, and I use a separate test suite not
Pgaccess, so I don't know what works with Pgaccess.
