hmmm ... macports has 8.5.11
can we fix it so that macports uses it's own tcl after installation ???

But let me get this problem fixed first ... then we can take a look at
whether and how /dict/ breaks under 10.5

I've used /dict/ extesively in Apache2, & it's uploaded to your
bitbucket so you've got the opportunity to test it under 10.5 on a
build-bot :-) I don't ahve an active 10.5 at present :-(

I used the manual that the macports guide refers to as my guide in
writing my port scripts

:-) Happy Hacking :-)
