I configured postgres 7.0.2 without tcl (or plperl for that matter).

So I went back and tried to make them.  

plperl made fine.  No problems adding it to Postgres either.

But the tcl build fails and I think it is because configure creates an 
erroneous unless USE_TCL is defined.

The Makefile for tcl executes the to create the needed 
defs to compile the

# here's the target

But if USE_TCL is not true then when configure creates the from the .in file, @TCL_CONFIG_SH@ is not so nothing is 
substituted for it in the resulting

I was able to overcome this by hand copying the to 
Makefile.tcldefs (and then removed all the ' (single quotes)) and 
everything is ok now.

Just a note for something that may need to be repaired so tcl can be added 
after an initial postgres build w/o having to re configure and reinstall ?
