Comment (by macports@…):

 With some searching I found "install_name_tool" (from
 on-a-mac-with-full-path a Stack Exchange question about OSX library
 linking with full paths]), which can be used to change the embedded path
 to a dylib within an executable, viz:

 sudo install_name_tool -change
 "/opt/local/lib/libtk8.6.dylib" /opt/local/bin/wish8.6

 and having fixed the libtk8.6.dylib embedded path to be the obvious one
 (with the above command), it will then run, and the port "rev-upgrade"
 check doesn't find any issues.  So that embedded path seems to be the only
 problem (can someone change the ticket subject?)

 That "install_name_tool" manual change should at least provide a temporary
 work around (ie, until the next port build of tk) for anyone who has
 installed the 8.6.0 version and doesn't want to revert to the 8.5.13 (or
 similar) version.
