I believe that would be:

fs-traverse file ${worksrcpath} {
   if [string match {/Makefile$} ${file}] {
     reinplace "s|/usr/local|${prefix}|g" ${file}

Like "foreach", the first argument to fs-traverse is the name of the  
loop variable, and the second is the directory to traverse. It's  
almost like writing "foreach file [glob ${worksrcpath}/**/]", except  
that Tcl doesn't support zsh-style globbing.

Here's another fairly simple example you might use in destroot. It's  
is preferable to "eval file copy [glob ...]" in that you can take  
control of the file permissions if you need to, by adding further  
processing inside of the "file" case.

cd ${worksrcpath}
foreach top [glob *] {
   fs-traverse file ${top} {
     switch -exact [file type ${file}] {
       directory { xinstall -d -m 755 ${destination}/${file} }
       file { xinstall -m 644 ${file} ${destination}/${file} }

(there's a possibility "foreach... fs-traverse..." might in the  
future become "fs-traverse file [glob *]")
