MacPorts uses the system-supplied Tcl interpreter, and /Library/Tcl  
is the standard location for application-provided Tcl packages. This  
was originally done to allow API clients that were not installed with  
DarwinPorts --  such as original PortsManager -- to find the  
darwinports1.0 libraries without hard-coding a prefix.
