I also removed the version-specific stuff from tcl/tk searching, so they
will have to be called tcl.h/tcl.[a/so] and tk.h/tk.[a/so] without the
version numbers. You will also have to specify the search location for
those directories when prompted by configure.
This seems to defeat the purpose of the configure script. Isn't it
supposed to find whatever is needed, whereever it is, and let the rest
of the software do the right thing?
In that case, it seems to me that configure should be checking all the
relevant version-specific locations without requiring any prompts.
After a few iterations, the list of appropriate directories will be
more-or-less all inclusive, so all will be well. The --use-tcl or
whatever config option can also give an explicit location in case the
current ones are not appropriate.
But removing the other directories and requiring either a special
installation or response to a prompt seems to go against the nature
(and usefulness) of the configure system.
